The largest of our indoor spaces, the Dickinson Ballroom is adjacent to the garden patio, a perfect spot for ceremonies or cocktail hours. The ballroom boasts high ceilings, brass chandeliers, and ample natural light and views of Amherst College. The pre-function area is tastefully furnished to reflect our historic charm.
The divisible space of the Dickinson Ballroom can be transformed into two smaller rooms: on the west side is the Samuel Fowler and on the east side is the Emily. These spaces are ideal for smaller weddings, elopements, rehearsal dinners, or post-wedding brunches.
Overlooking the Frost Gardens and the Amherst College campus, the outdoor Garden Tent offers the utmost in design flexibility. When walking into the Garden Tent, your eyes immediately go up to the gorgeous fabric draping and elegant chandeliers that line the ceiling. Brick flooring and retractable sides help to make this space comfortable for guests. The Garden Tent is available for events from April through October.
A refined and smart looking space, the Webster Ballroom provides a more intimate experience with extensive crown moldings and fresh, crisp colors. Custom designed chandeliers and traditional wall sconces further provide an inviting ambiance.
Conveniently located off the lobby, the Amherst Boardroom can accommodate twelve guests at a large mahogany table at the center of the room. This is the ideal space for a small group of your loved ones for an intimate celebration of your love.
The Rooftop Terrace is a unique and comfortable space for a ceremony, cocktail hour, rehearsal dinner, or even a post-wedding brunch. With sweeping views of the Amherst College grounds, you’ll be up close with our rooftop garden as you snuggle up in front of our signature fireplace.
Adjacent to the Rooftop Terrace and directly off of the 30Boltwood dining room is our Greenhouse. Our exclusive space with large windows and a retractable skylight gives this room an abundance of natural lighting. This room is also attached to our Wine Room which features plush seating, a historic exposed interior brick wall, and a chic yet cozy ambiance.
