    Hemlock Springs does permit alcohol so long as it is served by a licensed caterer or bartender with proof of certification and insurance and following the alcohol regulations and laws of Kentucky.

  3. Do you require event insurance?

    We do require that all events have proof of special event insurance that names Events At Hemlock Springs, LLC as additional insured. These policies are typically easy to obtain and if you need referrals, we would be happy to help you out.

    Hemlock Springs is a non-smoking facility. We understand that some people are very sensitive to the chemicals and smoke and strive to keep our facility clean and in pristine condition.
