This facility features exposed wooden beams, wood floors, and handcrafted wooden tables. The renovated hay loft, typically used as a yoga studio, can be completely transformed to provide a beautiful, intimate space for rehearsal dinners or ceremonies.

We had our rehearsal lunch at Zenbarn. They were so wonderful to work with and the space was perfect for us. We did a BBQ style lunch and everyone was raving about the food! If you're looking for a space for anything wedding related, I would suggest adding them to your list of potential venues and giving them a call!Sent on 09/16/2019
