What They’re Saying About Us

Straight from the Source

Matt, Thank you so much for the wonderful stay at Hidden Sound Studio. I had booked the space for a weekend away with my partner and it was well worth the drive from Regina! We arrived to be warmly greeted by Matt and given a tour of the space. The pride that he exudes during the tour is shown in the attention he's given his home. While there may be fresh paint and modern touches in the decor, you are still very embraced by the character of the home. The entire home is very clean and ready to be created in! The equipment and space available for creating are wonderful, my personal favorite being the record collection. It was a beautiful time of year to spend some time having hot coffee out on the screened-in deck and enjoying the hot tub under starlight - I can't wait to return for the warmer months and enjoy the beautiful yard! My partner and I are raising two young girls and we were looking forward to sleeping in a bit, and let me tell you... we had the most amazing sleep. I'm almost embarrassed to admit how much I LOVED this bed/bedroom. The mattress is incredible, you get tons of pillows and the blanket is so fluffy I could die. The basement has little light until well into the day and I was so excited to have the blacked-out room we did for the night. We truly had the most amazing sleep! We strolled the town a bit and checked out Lil's diner - they have a great Saskatoon pie! We came for a weekend away and left with a new friend. Thank you so much for the warm coffee and conversations, sharing your lovely space and a wonderfully rejuvenating weekend away to connect and create. We look forward to coming back, and soon! – JF


I had the opportunity to stay at Hidden Sound Studio twice for creative retreats and I absolutely loved the environment both times. I work as a skull artist and having time away from the busy city to be alone with my thoughts and nurture my ideas was just what I needed. I wrote, read, painted, sang, napped and delighted in the silence!!

Matthew was incredibly hospitable and the first time I came out to stay, I had the place to myself for 2 full days. I enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Blaine Lake, went for some nice walks around the town and popped into the local bakery for delicious coffee and a cinnamon bun to fuel my creative process!!

I would highly recommend Hidden Sound to all types of artists looking for a sanctuary to get grounded and tap into their flow ❤️ can’t wait for my next retreat!


We had a great time at Hidden Sound studio. Matt was a fantastic host and we felt so welcome - we had everything we needed (including a hot tub!) and would love to return some day. Highly recommend!

Matthew is so welcoming, I arrived for a songwriting retreat on a Friday evening. Matthew was so easy to talk to and made sure I knew he could help with whatever I need, or leave me be to write on my own.

Matthew's residence is so warm and welcoming and a great place to write. Being in a place that is so filled with music makes it easy to focus on songwriting.

I can’t wait to attend another song writing retreat at Hidden Sound. :)
