Thank you for creating Beaverbrook Cottage, so full of thoughtful, beautiful detail, and surrounded by such gorgeous embracing grounds. The muses are certainly here, alive and well. It was so easy to write, to work, but also to relax, unwind and watch the last of summer pass.

I had an incredible time in the hut! I wrote nine new songs that I’m pretty proud of and got some well-needed R&R. I’ll be back soon.

Beaverbrook proved to refresh, renew, and inspire us while recording our EP. We won’t soon forget the cottage, the land, or waiting out Hurricane Sandy. Thanks much for your gracious hospitality.

The band "Wild Leaves" stayed at Beaverbrook Cottage while recording their debut EP, "Wind and Rain." They also filmed this short documentary, "'Til the Storm Passes."

A wonderful coda to my dance theatre piece. A place to fall under all my creative impulses. Loved having the piano and such a huge space to sing in, to the trees, the geese and beyond.

We had an amazing time in this wonderful cottage. The acoustics are wonderful – my violin never sounded so good! We’ll definitely be back.
