Very homey, like you're just living with your uncles/aunties/cousins. The proprietors, Awing, Sigrid, Chef Miko and Bocan are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Like family, they ask you about your day, and what you plan to do next. They give you a warm welcome, like they're family you haven't seen for a long time. They live/stay there with their families so they really take care of the house - house is kept clean and tidy, and bathrooms don't run out of toilet paper. Very accommodating - someone will always be there at the kitchen if you need something (or if you need a water refill before you head out for a trek).
10-15 min walk from town. Sits in the middle of pine trees. Good views from all 3 sides of the house, except for one where there's a house meters away. Still better than being in the town where the inns are almost inches away from each other. Free jeepney transportation from town to lodge and lodge to town upon check-in / check-out. If the proprietors or anyone in the family are going your way, they'll offer you a ride.
The food by Chef Miko is super! I'd be glad to just eat here the whole stay, but hey it was my first time in Sagada, I should try other places.
The house has 2 floors with an attic, with 11 (?) bedrooms and 3 common bathrooms (1 on the 2nd floor, 2 on the first floor (1 inside, 1 outside). We stayed in one of the 3 rooms in the attic. With hot shower. Water was a bit weak but stable... and allowed me to relish the hot water longer.
The walls between rooms are a bit thin so you can hear undecipherable murmurs or clear conversations from neighbors depending on their level of consideration... and your luck. Definitely more quiet than in town with more people staying there (and dogs). With a fireplace at the dining area, and a bonfire pit out the main entrance.
I love Misty Lodge and I will definitely go back. I don't think I will ever consider looking at other accommodations in Sagada.
