About Zenbarn

Zenbarn is a remodeled 1920s dairy barn-turned-wedding venue, located in Waterbury Center, Vermont. This full-service venue offers couples amenities such as a kitchen with on-site catering, a stage, a full bar, accommodations, and professional staff to take care of their every need. While its restaurant and yoga studio provide a laid-back environment, the venue is dedicated to creating customized and unique occasions for each couple, shunning the cookie-cutter event venue stereotype. The staff and event coordinator want to ensure each couple, family member, and guest receives a special and meaningful experience.

Facilities and Capacity

Zenbarn can accommodate up to 120 guests for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and elopements, as well as bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. The largest space is the Zenbarn Restaurant, a 2,400-square-foot space with an open floor plan, restrooms, a full bar, a stage, and an outdoor area. 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. The tongue-and-groove pine, open space concept, and private entrance offer a modern, rustic atmosphere for special events. Outdoor ceremony sites can also be arranged, with stunning scenic views and the ability to decorate to a couple’s specifications. Parking, shuttle, and wheelchair access are also available. Lodging at Zenbarn includes a four-bedroom apartment or close by rustic yurts.

Services Offered

When couples book Zenbarn, they gain access to a full or partial wedding planner/event coordinator who can walk them through the process from beginning to end. Couples can choose all-inclusive packages or create their own event. The venue holds liability insurance for each occasion, and is also a pet-friendly facility. Wedding parties are welcome to use their private rooms to become wedding-ready, while staff provides set up and clean up throughout the event. Zenbarn also offers the following inventory:

    A charming venue

    Zenbarn was the perfect venue for our wedding. We had several compliments from guest that it suited us perfectly. It was rustic and charming with a very fun calming atmosphere. Lin was the perfect coordinator! She kept us calm and on track the entire time. All of my emails prior were answer within a few hours no matter how small the matter. We were struggling to find a venue that would accommodate an intimate wedding on a tight budget while still having all the traditional aspects a large venue would offer. Zenbarn was able to accommodate us and even set up all of our decorations so we had nothing to worry about but getting married! The food was superb and would 100% do it here again given the chance. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Lin and the team at Zenbarn!

    Call them!

    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!

    Thanks Meaghan, and yes we love to do rehearsals, brunches, welcome parties as well as weddings! We really appreciate the review and hope you stop in again soon to say hi.
