Zigbone Farm Retreat offers two options for overnight accommodations on your wedding weekend.

It has a two-story log cabin at its center with a historic brick addition on one side and a naturally-built addition on the other.

The Torfs-Leibman family bought the ZigBone Farm Retreat in 2009 with the vision of transforming its historic buildings and 100 mountain acres into an organic farm and a peaceful place for celebrations. After six years, they transformed the old farmhouse into a three-story lodge, the four-car garage into a meeting hall, and the spring house into a luxurious cabin with a loft.

Zigbone is a beautiful place to get married. We had wedding party and family coming in from around the country, so having a venue for the whole weekend was high on our priority list. The house and reception hall had everything we needed. Lynn, the venue coordinator, has a calm energy and helped us come up with a rain plan and coordinated all of the guest parking. We went with many local vendors, which we highly recommend. Our caterer, bartender, and baker had all either previously worked with Lynn or at the venue. It made day-of coordination seamless.Sent on 07/10/2018

Zigbone Farm Retreat was the perfect venue for us. It is phenomenally beautiful--both the natural setting, the wonderful flowers, and all of the building (inside and out). It allowed for us to do so much--an outdoor ceremony, a garden-style cocktail hour, a tented dinner, an indoor dance party, and we were able to have close friends and family stay on site and for the bride and groom to have our own cottage. Marijke and the site coordinators were also incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the lead-up to the wedding and throughout the weekend of the event. We really couldn't have asked for a better experience.Sent on 12/29/2017

ZigBone Farm Retreat was a magical place for our wedding. It could not have been more perfect. The views, the venue, and the lovingly restored buildings are stunning. Our friends and family raved about our venue, and also could not believe that such a bucolic mountain valley existed so close to Washington and Baltimore. ZigBone’s colorful, artful architecture is a photographer’s dream. We simply love our wedding photographs, because the backdrop was so beautiful.Sent on 08/25/2016
The property’s many dimensions worked great for the ceremony, cocktails, dinner, and dancing. Each indoor and outdoor space created a different experience and mood. Guests enjoyed exploring the farm – and the occasional braying baby goat added charm.
Owner-operator Marijke Torfs let us create our own wedding tailored to our vision. That said, we suggest consulting her to get her creative take on your plans. She loves to build and create different settings at the farm. She is also deeply committed to sustainability, which is reflected in the energy efficiency design and natural building techniques used throughout ZigBone’s buildings. This is important to my wife and me, and made the venue all the more meaningful to us.
Now that the guest accommodation rooms are finished (the renovation was almost complete during our event), there is even more to offer couples, and their families and friends.
ZigBone Farm Retreat is a treasure.
