Norris Family Reunion: Country Cottages, Lake George, NY

I still have a few more posts about our time at our family reunion in Lake George, NY last month. Once we left Rochester and got to Lake George, we spent the family reunion at the Lake George Country Cottages & Motel. I am sure there are nicer places to stay in Lake George but I really think this worked out well for our family. Some people had their own bigger 2 and even 3 bedroom cottages and others had smaller condo's or units. We stayed in a regular "motel" room but it had a little kitchenette with a fridge, sink, microwave and coffee maker and was plenty big enough for our family of four. We also were able to take advantage of my mom's cabin to cook breakfast and hang out when we needed to. There was a big grassy lawn area in the middle of the property with a pool, big gazebo, playground, fire pit, and grills. This was probably the best part and where we spent most of our time. Everyone just hung around outside and the kids had a blast playing with each other. Every night was spent making s'mores and staying up way too late drinking by the fire. It was so nice to stay up till 1 AM just hanging out with family. It is so out of my usual routine which normally includes going to bed at 9 p.m. but hey that is what vacation is for, right? We have a really big family (I think there was 49 people there) so it was hard to find a place that could accommodate us all but this ended up working out perfectly!
