GAMES LESS THAN 2 WEEKS AWAY -- Still searching for affordable Olympics

If you have plans to be in Atlanta during the Olympics and still haven't
found affordable accommodations, ALL IS NOT LOST -- we still have a couple
of rooms available, but they are going fast, so please contact us right

My husband and I are renting out rooms in our Atlanta home during the
Olympic and the Paralympic games.  For bed and breakfast accommodations 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.

We have the following rooms available:

(1)   Room with 2 twin beds and shared bathroom:
          From July 18 (or earlier) to July 25;  
          From July 28 to Aug 4 (or later).

(2)   Room with 1or 2 twin beds and shared bathroom:
           From July 18 (or earlier) to Aug 4 (or later).

Also, available for rental, we have a large luxury suite with queen size

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 and Paralympic 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 rhythmic 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, or more.  We are willing to drive you to and
from nearby public transit facilities each day for a small fee.

guarantee that you will receive a very prompt response.
