ABOUT LEE ANN

I was 14 years old the first time I visited Charleston and from that moment on I was in love with this historic city. Leaving town, riding in the backseat of my parent’s station wagon and reading “Charleston” by Alexandra Ripley, I decided then and there I was going to live in Charleston, someday. (I know the book is fiction, but it IS historical fiction so at least I was learning a little something.)

Years later, and after many weekend getaways to Charleston, it was decided that it would be less expensive for us to move from Atlanta than to continue our support for the hotels and B&B’s in this lovely city. (By the way they are excellent). As the saying goes, the rest is history and do we have a lot of that here.

Charleston is a city that touches all of your senses – from putting your hand on a 100 year old piece of iron work, to peeking through a gate and seeing an amazing garden, to the smell of puff mud (this is an acquired scent) or the hint of the aroma of the Confederate Jasmine, to finding an pottery shard on the streets and wondering what story it holds. Charleston is such an enchanting city and I am very lucky that I get to experience it every day! I have been certified by the City of Charleston since 2010, so should you need a professional guide with a heartfelt passion to introduce you to this wonderful city, please contact me.
