Studio Facilities

Our Old House Studio is located in our 150-year-old farmhouse on two park-lake acres in the quiet country town of Philmont NY. We are located approximately two hours north of New York City, and 2.5 hours west of Boston MA, in the Hudson Valley of NY. A more beautiful place to be while working on your recording project you simply won't find.
