About

Up to 150 guests

Zigbone Farm Retreat is a stunning wedding and event venue nestled in the rolling hills and valleys of the Catoctin Mountains, near both Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Frederick, Maryland -- and only one hour from Washington DC and Baltimore. The 100-acre farm features beautifully and naturally restored historic farmhouses and breathtaking views, all combining into a stunning backdrop for your celebration.

History

The Torfs-Leibman family bought the old Rocca farm in 2009 with the vision of transforming its historic buildings and 100 rolling acres into a working farm and nature-inspired retreat complex for celebrations. Today, the vision is realized: the old farmhouse is now the three-story, luxurious ZigBone Eco-Lodge; the springhouse is the romantic, timber-framed Bridal Cottage; and the rambling four-car garage is the Event Hall with an attached, wooden-beamed outdoor pavilion with sky lights and chandeliers. Sheep, goats, chickens, and barn cats have their run of the pastures. A 16-bed vegetable garden produces fresh produce for guests and friends and family. Guests call this place "magical," a "fairy tale," "stunning." We call it ZigBone Farm Retreat -- our dream come true.

Accommodations

Zigbone Farm Retreat offers overnight accommodations for up to 25 people on your wedding weekend. The three-story Zigbone Eco-Lodge sleeps up to 21 people and features an eat-in kitchen, hardwood floors, large dining room, and luxurious, light-filled sleeping rooms. 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, and stone terraces, porches, and patios all around. The Bridal Cottage sleeps up to three people, is handicapped accessible, and features high, wooden-beam ceilings, paned windows, hardwood floors, private deck, a sleeping alcove, and a writing nook.

Event Spaces

Zigbone Farm Retreat offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for an unforgettable ceremony and reception. Outdoor spaces -- wisteria covered stone terraces, timber-framed covered patios, old stone walls, gardens exploding with brightly-colored flowers, wrought-iron gazebos -- provide perfect backdrops for an outdoor ceremony on the back lawn. Guests can then move into the Event Hall and under the covered pavilion for dinner and dancing.

Capacity

The venue can hold weddings of up to 150 guests, and provides overnight accommodations for a total of 25 people.

    Weekend Wedding Bliss!

    Let me just say that Zigbone Farm is truly a magical place. I honestly had the best weekend of my life celebrating our wedding at Zigbone. This venue offers so much more than a traditional wedding venue. The property is absolutely stunning. The accommodations on the property sleep 25 guests. The photos of this house DO NOT do it justice. We knew we wanted a weekend getaway vibe for our closest friends and Zigbone provides exactly that. We were able to host 20+ of our friends for the weekend, we were able to use the outdoor pizza oven for our rehearsal dinner on Friday night, and everyone was able to hang out all weekend without strict guidelines of when the reception had to start and end. The bridal/honeymoon suite on the property is perfect for getting ready and on site hair and makeup and then doubled as a private escape for us at the end of our wedding night. There is so much flexibility with vendors you can bring in and what you can do here. This is not an all-inclusive venue. However, I liked that I could personalize our wedding experience without being locked in to specific vendors and timelines. Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful the house, the property, and the reception space were. The labor of love that went into making Zigbone what it is today is evident in every single detail. There are countless spots inside and outside for gorgeous wedding portraits as well. Lynn, the property manager and coordinator, was so helpful and such a calming, welcoming energy all weekend. She was present whenever we needed her and made sure everything ran smoothly. We had rain Saturday afternoon and Lynn and Duke were ready to set up ceremony chairs the moment the rain stopped so we could still have our outdoor ceremony on time. On Saturday morning she even brought animal crackers to let our guests feed the goats on the farm! Investing such a large amount of money into a single weekend is so scary for many couples, but having our wedding at Zigbone Farm was the BEST decision we made and worth every single penny. If you are on the fence, I encourage you to go visit and meet Lynn. You will feel magic for yourself.

    ZigBone is the Perfect Place for a Wedding!

    We could not have asked for anything more. First, even though it feels like it's in the middle of nowhere, ZigBone is just over an hour from the DC area. Second, the farm is set on 100 acres among the rolling Catoctin foothills. Third, the buildings include a large lodge that, together with the wedding cottage, can sleep 25 people. Fourth, the event space includes a huge covered pavilion (replete with chandeliers), making an outdoor ceremony and reception possible regardless of rain. And fifth (but not even close to finally), Marijke will make you feel welcome and ensure that everything runs smoothly. The pictures on the website are lovely, but they do not do justice to the structures and grounds. We barely needed centerpieces or other flower arrangements as the gardens were overflowing. I could go on and on, but instead, I urge you to make an appointment to visit ZigBone and then book your wedding (or really, any other special event) there as soon as possible. They fill up quickly!
