My husband and I are renting out rooms in our Atlanta home during the
games.  We've received a lot of bookings over the past month, but still
have a few vacancies left.   If you don't object to having to travel 15
minutes further to the downtown venues in return for reasonable rates and
comfortable accommodations in a quiet and secure upscale neighborhood, we
urge you to contact us immediately to reserve a room -- they are going
fast.

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.

case-sensitive, be sure to capitalize the words, Atlanta, Housing, and
Olympics.

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
Atlanta.  

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.
