Many of the most creative and celebrating artists in the music business have called it home while they record here at Dark Horse Recording. This timber, stone and glass structure is awe-inspiring with old-world charm combined with modern elegance. As you enter the foyer through the massive timber frame portico you’ll be greeted by a nine foot concert grand piano under a skylit cathedral ceiling. The historic fireplace, stone archways and custom furniture all come together to create an exquisite masterpiece. Three bedrooms, two and a half baths, kitchen, workout room, dining room, theater room and multiple gathering areas. If you’re in town on business, or a vacationer seeking an unforgettable experience the Cottage will exceed your expectations. The Cottage was designed and constructed by former RCA recording artist, Author, and Dark Horse Recording founder Robin Crow to serve as a 'home away from home' for the stars who live at the estate during lengthy recording projects. From Nashville experience to platinum recording artists hoping to make their next big hit, all of our guests fall in love with The Cottage’s beauty, spirit, and warm country charm. Your only neighbor on the estate is the historic Dark Horse Recording studio... home to artists like Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Matchbox 20, Carrie Underwood, Neil Diamond, The Wailers, Michael W. Smith, and many more. So during your stay at The Cottage at Dark Horse you’ll find yourself among very good company. The 10 acre riverside estate is nestled in the rolling hills of historic Franklin, just 17 miles south of the sights and sounds of exciting downtown Nashville. And if the big city isn’t your cup of tea, you’ll be just three miles from vibrant downtown Franklin and nine miles from Cool Springs, Nashville’s premier shopping district. While on the estate you can hike down to the natural West Harpeth River, stroll the expansive grounds and boardwalks, lounge under the gazebo, enjoy the fire pit, and take a private tour of the world famous Dark Horse studios just across the way. The 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath Cottage at Dark Horse is only available upon request. To speak directly with designer/host Robin Crow, request your booking today! More
