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