Atlanta is all-abuzz with e***ment -- 10 days ago the Atlanta Olympic
Stadium opened its doors to the public, for the very first time, and some
of the Olympic athletes are already here, in the city.

If you have plans to come to Atlanta during the Olympics and you haven't
yet been able to find affordable accomodations, we still have a couple of
rooms available, but they are going fast, so please contact us right away
to make a reservation.

My husband and I are renting out rooms in our Atlanta home during both the
Olympics and the Paralympic games.  For bed and breakfast accomodations in
rooms with 2 twin beds, we are asking $75.00 per night for a minimum
3-week stay; $90.00 per night for a minimum 2-week stay; and $107.00 per
night for a one-week stay.  Daily rate is $150.00 per night.

Also, available for rental, we have a large luxury suite with queen size
bed, walk in closet and huge private bathroom with twin sinks, commode,
and separate shower and garden tub.  For the suite, we are asking $120.00
per night for a minimum 3-week stay, $140 per night for a minimum 2-week
stay, and $160.00 per night, per person (with double occupancy) for a
minimum 3-week stay.  The daily rate is $180.00 per night.

We are located northeast of the downtown area, relatively close to many of
the Olympic venues.  For instance we are exactly halfway between Lake
Lanier -- where all the aquatic events (rowing, canoeing, etc) are taking
place -- and the Olympic stadium and other key venue sites downtown.  We
are only 4 miles from I-85, the main access route north, to Gainesville
and Lake Lanier and south, to downtown.  A shuttle bus to the Doraville
MARTA station -- the public transit system to all the events at the
Olympic stadium and other key venue sites downtown -- is less than 10
minutes away.   From Doraville, trains leave every 3 minutes and the fare
is $1.50 per ride.  If you have event tickets, the ride is free.  We are
also less than an hour from Soccer, volleyball and rythmic gymnastics
events at the University of Georgia campus in Athens, north-east of

Our home is in a very quiet and crime-free area, away from congested
downtown districts.  From our front deck, we look down upon acres of
unspoiled Georgia pine and hardwood forest land, that is habitat to deer,
squirrels and a wide variety of colorful songbirds.  Canada geese often
fly over on their way to Lake Lanier.

When you arrive, we will pick you up at Atlanta's Hartsfield International
Airport at no cost to you--the usual taxi fare for this ride on
"uncrowded" highways is $65.  We are willing to drive you to and from
nearby public transit facilities each day for a small fee.  You will,
undoubtedly, find this service invaluable because city officials report
that, in July and August, the traffic in this city in and around venue
sites will be extremely congested and parking will be expensive and hard
to find.

guarantee that you will receive a very prompt response.
