About the Retreat - March 8-10, 2019

Our weekend begins on Friday afternoon (please arrange to arrive between 4 and 8 pm.).   We'll get acquainted and a light dinner will be available after 6 pm. 

All Rewards, No Risk!  Our workshop will begin on Saturday morning after breakfast.  Ann will send a complete list of what you will need to bring and what will be provided a few weeks before the retreat.  The workshop will last all day, with breaks for meals and other activities.  You can hike around the farm - there are 1oo acres to explore, plus sheep and goats to see - read, take a nap, relax or just enjoy the view from one of the many cozy seating areas around the lodge.  Ann will be available for help with your steeking, so don't hesitate to take your time completing your project! 

On Sunday, we'll finish up our sweaters, gather for lunch and enjoy a leisurely afternoon until we depart after 3 pm. (Don't forget to bring your knitting!)

About Zigbone Farm Eco Lodge

ZigBone Farm Retreat is a spacious and inviting lodge on a 100-acre farm located in Frederick County, MD. (about half an hour north of the City of Frederick). The buildings were constructed with craft timber framing using salvaged and local natural materials, such as old barn beams and wood siding, straw bales for insulation, and clay plaster hand-made from the farm’s earth and hand-applied.

​A pre-existing historic, two-story log cabin (a big surprise discovered during  demolition) is now the lodge’s proud centerpiece. A brick section, appended to the log cabin in the 1880s, is made from brick baked on the farm.​  Seven geothermal wells provide energy efficient heating and cooling.

Accommodations at the Retreat are primarily on the second and third floor of the Lodge.  There are no single rooms available;  there are a limited number of double rooms, and several rooms with 4 or 5 beds.  If you have mobility issues that may prevent you from accessing the upper floors, please send a note and we can advise you of the availability of suitable accommodations.  SORRY - ALL GROUND FLOOR OPTIONS ARE NOW SOLD OUT.
