Activities: The resort is right on its own Lake George Beach and has many on site activities (tennis, boating, playgrounds etc.) The Lake George areas has many other activities from hiking, to amusement parks, dinner cruises, theater, etc. Martin Jr suggested a local race : on Sunday July 10th http://www.saratogaspringshm.com/Info.htm
Meals: we will mainly be organizing our own meals, but there are many restaurant options - Randye will organizing a shopping trip to stock up the lodge
Facilities: This resort does not do any mid week cleaning, so we will need to do our own in that regard - we plan this time to try to hire someone to help with this.
Pre/post planning - there are 8 Friedrichs homes in the NY area, so we expect to be able to put up all travelers flying into and out of NY. We may also have close to enough cars for the trip up. So this will reduce the cost of those traveling in.
