The Studio

Stone Studio is located in the foothills of the Berkshires in Lakeville, Connecticut. At just a 2-hour getaway from New York City (and accessible by Metro-North), the studio offers a relaxed and focused creative environment. The studio is housed inside an old converted carriage house where the natural acoustics are open, balanced, and soulful.

Inside the studio is a full kitchen, full bathroom, big screen projector, fresh coffee, a stocked bar, and the comforts and amenities of home. Outside the studio, the Berkshires offers some of the best lake activities, white water rafting, hiking, skiing, farmer's markets, restaurants, distilleries and craft breweries.

About Us

The studio is operated by Graham Stone and Ariel Loh. Together, we strive to make Stone Studio a musician's getaway and creative retreat.

The space is designed as an open-layout studio - we believe the creative process is fluid and we like to help keep the creative energy flowing in a single room. Sounds can inspire songs and songs can inspire sounds and we want to help nurture that ideology in your music. We have painstakingly collected and paired vintage instruments, recording equipment, and other sound toys that we find inspiring to compliment the space. We hope to share the space we with you and your music.
