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.

Perfect Unique Vermont Wedding!

Our wedding was absolute perfect at the Zen Barn! We love this area and already loved the Zen for its super cozy and authentic Vermont vibe, so were psyched when they took on our wedding. The food ... Read more was out of this world and they worked with us to create unique and delicious farm to table meal that our guests still rave about. They created a beautiful ceremony site outside with the reception and dancing inside the barn which is spacious while still feeling intimate. The staff on the day-of was flawless - everything was perfectly timed and they were so attentive. Our guests all told us how our wedding was the BEST wedding they had ever been to, in short due to the great location, amazing food, great beer list and overall aesthetic you really can’t get anywhere else at any of the other local wedding venues. Lin, Noah and Arie really cared about making our day amazing and we are so grateful! Thank you again and sorry so late in writing this review! Best, Julia and Cory
