It has the same design as Taj Mahal. Nothing much to see. There will be a long walk before you reach the Mansion and you can only take pictures outside so we took one outside of the gate and one inside but we can't really go inside of the mansion, we just took pictures at the bottom of the hill....

We were only able to view The Mansion from the entrance at the bottom of the hill below. Unspectacular, but if you're in the area you'll probably drive by it anyway.

But that's just 30 meters in up to the sidewalk. Take a picture when inside of the gate. We must've looked like prisoners peering into the house from the outside. Now, we were give a view of how the people on the outside look from those who are stationed there. Hope you have memory in your phone or cameras.

It's just right beside Wright park so you can visit this one and just take a selfie/groupie or just take a pic of the mansion itself. Nothing much to do after that. Haha.

We were not able to get in the mansion gates that is last March 2015, the reason behind was that the President of the Philippines is currently in Baguio due to incoming PMA graduation. He will be the guest on Honor. The Mansion is serving as the official residence of the President when he is in Baguio the reason where... More

We chanced upon The Mansion after hiking 100+ steps up Wright Park. The entry way somewhat reminds you of French castles. The iron gate is absolutely beautiful, and the wide expanse of green in front of the mansion is where you jockey for photo ops space with a million other tourists. The Mansion serves as the summer residence of the... More

The mansion was impressive to see but you can not get close and there is only a small area just inside the gate you are able to walk around so it was a bit disappointing so we were only there for 5 minutes to take a couple of pictures and left as you could not see much, but it was... More

The mansion looks grand, especially with its extensive open grounds. It makes for an excellent photo ops or background. The place is worth the visit and it is near the Wright Park and Baguio Botanical Garden.

As we were in Baguio to relax - this is one of the good place to simply walk around slowly and have a good conversation. As we did - we sat by the side and simply took those long deep breath to enjoy while having those great conversation ...

Unfortunately you cannot enter the mansion but you can take pictures and have it as a background. Lots of people stop to get a glimpse and take a selfie.
