This is the scene at Lumot Port while waiting for the caretaker to pick us up.
Excellent ambiance is waiving at us already haha.
Just after 10 minutes, we reached the island where Sierra Lake House is located.
Sierra Lake House has 2 main houses for rent. This main house is called the Lakehouse. The Lakehouse is composed of a living room, dining room, kitchen, 2 comfort rooms, and 3 bedrooms.
If you are a group of 7 to 16 people, the lakehouse is the best choice for you.
Living Room and Dining Area
The cool breeze passes through the large windows of the living room. We didn’t even need to use the electric fan.
The kitchen in the lakehouse has everything we needed, from the cooking up to our dining needs.
We just brought food, and then we cooked it in the kitchen
Above is a picture of me and my beshie Michael haha we are lighting up the charcoal before we put it in the grill 🙂 Pork Barbecue, and Grilled Hotdogs are in the menu 🙂 . On the other hand, Viz and Jerome are preparing to cook the rice and Chopseuy.
The lakehouse has a total of 3 bedrooms, and bed arrangement differs depending on how many are the guests.
The first bedroom is located just above the stairs.
The bed in this second bedroom has a bed frame. This room is smaller than the other rooms so I think it can only fit one double bed.
The third bedroom is the biggest from the three. So, three beds are placed here. Aside from these beds, I think one or two more beds can fit here.
Nipa Hut (Kubo Accommodation)
Among all of the lodging area in Sierra Lake House, this is Busy and my favorite. This can accommodate 2 to 6 people.
Why do we like it so much? It’s because it’s just beside the Lumot lake, so we can see various birds flying around, and we get to see nature immediately even though we are just lying on the bed.
Plus, it looks good at night!
The Nipa hut is small but we love it so much, it’s like we are living in the province.
We took some romantic shots here.
Other Nipa Huts
There are other 2 Nipa huts in Sierra Lake House. This one is a resting area, or a dining area too! We used this one as our dining area.
We preferred to eat here because we get to expose ourselves in the nature more then eating just inside the house.
The other nipa hut is bigger, and can accommodate a lot of people.
Activities in Sierra Lake House
Sierra Lake House is just on an island, but there are a lot of activities.
Use the Kayak, Paddle Board, and the Bamboo Raft
Those who would like a bit of thrill can use these.
Like our friend Gire, he want to use the paddle board but he doesn’t want to get wet HAHHAHAA. If his balance is off he’ll be wet.
So he, and my brother, Karl, used the kayak and went on their journey trough the nearby islands, and row beside the flock of birds.
On the other hand, Busy and I enjoyed the raft and take a few photos.
Enjoy the large yard
Sierra Lake House is in a big island that’s why there is a lot of space for other activities.
Just like playing Frisbee, here’s me and our friend Jerome.
If you don’t want to be exhausted, and just enjoy nature, you can sit back and relax in the private island.
Here’s my brother, using the Hammock.
This swing is also available. After a few swings and you’re on relaxation mode.
There are also chairs facing the lake, you can just sit here and relax… or chat a bit.
Play with the Animals
Sierra Lake House is an animal friendly private island. You can bring your pets here (just make sure to clean up after them), or play with the animals in the island.
Here are the playful dogs in the island, they have a lot of energy!
There are a lot of birds in the island and nearby islands, so it will be great to watch them passing by, getting fish, or just staying there beside you. Here’s one picture of a big bird (I don’t know what kind of bird is this), it is white and has long legs. Unfortunately, they move so fast so I can’ take a great photo of them haha. It’s in the middle of this picture…
There are also chickens in the island. They’re easy to take a picture. 😆
Watch the Sunset
Because we are in a private island, we get to enjoy the sunrise and sunset.
We just don’t have a picture of the sunrise because we are still asleep. 😆
Visit the nearby Islands
Busy and I walked to the nearby island which is just connected to Sierra Lake House. But some of our friends used the kayak and row their way to the other islands.
Swim and go to the secret falls
You can swim in the kayaking area, or you can go to the secret falls. We did not have the time to swim and go to the secret waterfalls, but you can ask the caretaker to take you there.
Bonfire and Smores
The best way to enjoy the night is to set up a bonfire and eat some Smores. Just ask the help of the caretakers and they will set up a bonfire for your group for Php 100 per batch. One batch is enough for a 3-4 hours already.
We drank, told a few stories, and sang our hearts out while enjoying the bonfire.
Enjoy the Night
Nights in Sierra Lake House is very romantic! They have these lights set up in the island.
Just remember, the lights are off after 12 midnight.

Here are more of our pictures of the Sierra Lake House.
They said we should be serious…
but seriousness is not in my dictionary. 😆
Gire and Karl enjoying the house.
Just nature around…
Ohhh more birds!
It was a full moon when we were there.
Happy’s Birthday Surprise at the Sierra Lake House
I went in Sierra Lake House to celebrate my birthday with my friends. However I did not expect that they have this mini surprise for me. 🙂
Busy called me to take our picture upstairs, then when we went down, they started singing Happy Birthday!
Thank you guys! I didn’t expect that one 🙂
Is that Hello Kitty or a cat on the cake? Haha anyway, I love them both!
I’m getting the icing before it totally melt and go to waste. 😆
