Elmar Cabin is a an early 20th century cabin house acquired and converted into a B&B type transient house, owned and managed by the adorable Ms. Ely Joaquin-Lacambra. This gorgeous place used to be owned by a former beauty queen, I won't say, ask the owner.
Entryway is through the wide parking lot. Right side full wall is decorated with rows of plants and lowers. Similar to what you can find at Good Shepherd and parks of the city.

There are several wooden tables and chairs scattered outdoor infront of the house where guests can sit, relax, sip hot and cold beverages and enjoy the blue skies and the cool weather or mingle with other guests.
Elmar Cabin is only 1 km away to Session Road or Burnham Park. If you're one of those who prefer to explore the city by walking - and by the way Baguio has cool climate all year round - it will only take you 15 minutes or less and you'll reach Session Road, Sm Baguio or Burnham Park.
Entrance to the cabin house is through the lovely porch with wooden benches and coffee table. The main door open up to the colorful reception area with big couches, an old piano, an antique clock, and several interesting stuff.

Guests can hangout day or night at the indoor cafeteria, order some beverages, meals, snacks, or (I prefer personally) the lovely spacious outdoor cafeteria surrounded by different kinds of flora, just infront of the cabin house. Bonfire at night? They can also arrange that for big groups.
