    Default accept me to

    Can one say:
    1-He accepted me to stay with him for a few days.
    instead of:
    2-He accepted that I stay with him for a few days.

    To be honest, I would use "allowed" instead of "accepted" here. Though you could say:

    "He accepted me as a guest for a few days."
