Old but Gold
Feb 2021 • Family
A great place to refresh, stroll and sit. It's good for big events or celebrations since I had participated the cultural dances way back Panagbenga 2018 that was held in here but the stage lacks space. Also very historical. Good for those who loves about histories.

Bell House Museum Baguio

A beautiful American colonial architecture, the Bell House reflects the lifestyle during its era. It used to be the resthouse of Gen. Franklin Bell. He was the one who transformed Camp John Hay to a military resort.

Old-Style American House
Jan 2020
The place has nothing much. You can take a picture, scroll, sit and rest.

The entrance fee is Php 48.00/each and Php 36.00 for PWD, Senior, and Students. You can visit Bell Amphitheater, Cemetery of Negativism, Secret Garden, Butterfly Sanctuary, and History Trail. You don't need to spend a lot of time here, just a quick site seeing.

A place to visit if you have time
Jul 2019 • Friends
A small part of Camp John Jay is where you'll find the Bell House. You need to pay Php75 to get inside a fenced part where the house and a few attractions can be seen. It was nice to see an old-style american house for the first time. Nice place to visit if you want to kill the time.

Not much to see and do but worth a visit to cross off your list. A nice place for celebrations. A pleasant little café to have coffee and short meals is available. The staff were very friendly.

Amazing ambiance!

A century-old house preserved for us to see this day.
This historical place has been established earlier than the city.

Very big and nice place. Many activities for children. We went in the yellow trail and it was very nice. You can also walk near the roads inside, or picnic there. Maintained very nice and clean. Many restaurants.

A little piece of 'Americana'
Dec 2017
As I remembered correctly, it was once a residence of an old military General during the American occupation in the Philippines, and the place was named in commemoration of him. It was a big piece of land up in the hills of Baguio, and his team somehow played a big role in the modernization of the city itself. For decades, this place has been a part of everyone's list when they visit Baguio City, and up to this day. It welcomes more than a thousand people a day. It's easily accessible by taxi, and if you'll take a 'jeepney' ride to this place, you'd probably need to walk up a hill and inside the big premises to reach John Hay's house (which I ended up doing). It was a nice cardio exercise going up that hill. The place was well taken cared of, quite a couple of activities to do around the area, so it's really nice to give it some time.
