Many who frequent Baguio know of Forest House, a homey restaurant along Loakan Road that looks like a log cabin. Since 2001, have been going there for the comfort food and its exceptional view if you choose to dine on the terrace.
Unfortunately, after 19 years, Forest House is closing its doors. They made the announcement on Facebook: "Whether you dropped by for a cup of coffee or a feast with your family, we thank you for your support. We are glad that Forest House became a part of your dining experience. But unfortunately, an era comes to an end."
"Forest House was a place to create memories. We were there holding the bouquet when you proposed to your fiancé. We set up the veranda for your wedding by the sunset. We were there to sing you "Happy Birthday" as you came back year after year. We took care of your kids as they experienced their first Christmas by the fireplace. We welcomed you back as you brought your friends over to share your experience. We heard your fun and laughter as it drowned the mellow background music. It was always a pleasure for us to have you come back."
They finished their goodbye with, "We are grateful for the last 19 years. Each time you entered, we warmly welcomed you; and as you left, we thanked you and bid you goodbye. But this time we say our last farewell."
We'll miss this place so much!
