Good night!

Here is my question...

Can I say "Thank you for having me stay over the summer..." ?

Or it will be better if I change "having" for "let"

I'm still learning English, so please help me with this.

I'll appreciate it !

    Just "having me over the summer" would be okay. – Greg Lee Feb 15 '15 at 1:47

It depends on how you came to stay the summer.

If you were invited to stay, then "having me stay" is correct.

If you asked to stay, and they permitted it, then "letting me stay" is what you should use.

The right answer is let me stay.
