If you need a place to reconnect with nature and your family, Marjorie Barretto's rest house in Calumpit Bulacan is the place to be. From the open-air spaces to the dining areas, take a peek inside this homey rest house, dubbed as the "River Garden."

In a recent vlog, the mom of five says the property holds a special place in her heart since "this where the kids grew up. We have so many memories here." Marjorie says this is where they usually hold family reunions, from vacations to holiday breaks.

True to its name, this rest house boasts a relaxing view of the Angat River. Of course, it has a view deck, which unsurprisingly, according to Marjorie, is her family's favorite spot.

Another common area where family members can gather is the courtyard. Marjorie says, her kids, especially Claudia, used to complain about the area "kasi sobra daw dusty tapos pag umulan, maputik." But now, it has pavers put on the area, giving the place a modern touch as well.

The rest house also has a pool area, which according to Marjorie, was built with the money she won from the game show "Pera o Bayong".

The River Garden has four bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The bedrooms are also named after flowers to match the name of the rest house.

River Garden is a meticulous puzzle, pieced together over the past 20 years using Marjorie's old personal furnitures and hand-me-downs from her mom, Estrella Castelo Barretto. "My mom has passed on to me a lot of her furniture kasi we share the same passion for home," Marjorie shares.
