Hotel Appalachia

Last week Hotel Appalachia opened up in Harrisonburg as the newest practice & production room, offering studio rehearsals & recordings, as well as rentals for groups and teachers.

Inspired by the idea that working artists need a working studio, Hotel Appalachia is a professional recording space designed for everyone. State-of-the-art hardware and gorgeously-handcrafted, fully-modular sound-treatment combine in a space that looks as incredible on film as it sounds on tape.

Hotel Appalachia is no ordinary sound-studio. With their Do-It-Professionally-Yourself option, they’ll gladly put ALL of the power in your hands. You don’t know how to run a digital sound board? Don’t worry. They’ll teach you everything you need to know to get started. Perfect for podcasters and independent producers; it’s all the benefits of having a large, well-treated room — and a professional mic-locker and backline — combined with the independence and control of being in your home studio.
