The recording studio is a separate wing attached to the house.  It was built by acclaimed designer Frank Comentale combined with work from Dave Malekpour of Pro Audio Design.  It features 2 live rooms, a keyboard room and a booth/amp room, each with their own unique acoustics. The Control Room and Keyboard Room can each function independently to provide two simultaneous zones for mixing, recording & editing.  The gear list is second to none, featuring mics by Neumann & Telefunken, mic pres by Neve, Api, an EMT plate reverb, live chamber, Yamaha baby grand piano w/Disklavier, a host of classic outboard gear and Pro Tools Ultimate & Ableton DAW with Avid S3/Dock control surfaces (see gear list).

The guest house is the original portion of the facility, built in 1803 and fully renovated to the quality of a 4 star Bed & Breakfast.  It features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a lounge in the upstairs living quarters.  Each room has 2 twin XL beds (which can be combined to king beds) comfortably accommodating 6 people.  Additionally, 2 more can be accommodated in a sofabed.  The downstairs features a full kitchen, dinning area, lounge with fireplace and a laundry room.  We offer packages that include maid service and/or a chef.
