Is there a private or semi private party area that could accommodate about 20 people for a baby shower?

Response from lewmurray | Reviewed this property |
You should call and see. The area I am aware of would be semi-private at best. They have a large back room as well as a smaller front dining area. Both have been busy when we are there.
