Frequently Asked Rental Questions
Can I serve alcohol?
Yes, the Sam Davis Home permits the serving of alcohol as long as there is a ABC licensed bartender distributing the beverages. We do not allow glass bottles, or glass drinkware.
Can we bring our own food/vendors?
You are welcome to bring your own food or use any vendor you prefer. Parties of 50 or less guests are not required to provide SDH with insurance coverage for food. Parties of 51 or more guests are required to provide SDH with a certificate of insurance listing SDH as additionally insured for $1,000,000 per occurrence for each vendor. If you are providing the food yourself for 51 or more guests, you are required to attain this policy from your insurance provider. These must be on file at least two weeks before your rental date.
What if it rains?
SDH is limited on indoor/covered space. For parties of up to 50-100, we can usually accommodate your guests in indoor and/or covered spaces. For parties larger than 100 guests, we recommend having a tent rented or on standby.
Is there enough parking?
