The Blue Heron Restaurant is located in a beautifully renovated 150-year-old building and offers one of the most unique and comfortable spaces available in the Pioneer Valley. We are conveniently situated 10 minutes from Amherst, 15 minutes from Northampton and 2 miles from Route 91.

Step into Lincoln Hall and you can’t help but fall in love with its majestic 18–foot tin ceiling and walls, complemented by 1600 square feet of solid maple floors. Decorated in warm colors that reflect the New England landscape, Lincoln Hall is the perfect location for an elegant yet comfortable affair.

Rental of Lincoln Hall includes all tables, chairs, linens & place settings. Available for parties up to 120 guests.

Rental of the entire restaurant available, please call for details and availability.
