"Can we call it 'Home'"?

We stayed at the Lily Pad with extended family during a trip to the Lake George area this June and July. A few days into the stay, our nine-year-old niece stated emphatically, "Do we have to call it the rental house, can we just call it 'Home?'" From then on, it was "home" to everyone. The Lily Pad was the perfect place for our stay. It was clean, well supplied with anything we could think of needing, comfortable, and within a nice distance to all sorts of fun activities. The firepit was wonderful for evening campfires and we made lots of use of it! Not only is it close to its own private dock, but it's close to the public swimming beach. For us the upstairs and downstairs living rooms were an added plus because it gave us plenty of room to spread out for time apart but plenty of space for time together. The bedroom decor is lovely. Having a washer and dryer made a two-week stay so much easier. The wifi, Netflix, and other streaming services made the kids really happy. Cheri was wonderful to work with! She made sure that everything we needed was provided and answered every question we had. We would LOVE to stay at the Lily Pad again.
