Unforgettable 30th Birthday Murder Mystery Party! - An Eventective User from Greenfield, IN

Our time at the Charles Davis Mansion truly was an enchanting time travel experience for my 30th birthday! The venue took us on a magical journey back in time! From the moment we stepped in, the attention to detail and nostalgic ambiance blew us away. Bill was a pleasure to work with and treated us like VIPs, going above and beyond to ensure our event was flawless. His enthusiasm and dedication were infectious, making us feel valued and excited throughout the celebration. The memories created at this murder mystery party will forever hold a special place in my heart. I wholeheartedly recommend the Charles Davis Mansion for anyone seeking a unique and exhilarating celebration. Their ability to transport you to another time and create a truly personalized experience is unmatched. Thank you, Bill & Jess for making my 30th birthday a remarkable and enchanting affair!

70th birthday party - An Eventective User from Shelbyville

awesome experience with the host of Charles Davis Mansion. We forgot a few things to serve our food on and he had extra serving platters, etc. I would definitely recommend this beautiful house for any celebration.

Fantastic Party Venue! - An Eventective User

We hosted a Murder Mystery Party for 20 people at this awesome mansion! We all moved around freely and it felt like we were in our own house. Everything we needed the mansion provided, from red carpet entry to candle-lit rooms, and champagne glasses, to a formal sit-down dinner in the dining room. The impressive kitchen made food prep a breeze. Some guests stayed overnight in huge bedrooms! The owner was very friendly, and helpful, going out of his way to make sure our event went without a hitch. Everyone was amazed by each room and the history behind it. All of us are satisfied customers. So glad we discovered this mansion!!!
