About Charles Townson

My wife and I have been married for over 38 years and this is our retirement home. I was a healthcare executive for 25 years and then taught advanced placement courses in public high school for eight years prior to retiring in 2014. My courses included AP US History and AP Comparative Government and Politics. Kristin, my wife, was an industrial engineer and specialized in statistical process control for a leading aeronautical firm. Like me, she also taught in public high school for a number of years as a second career. For eight years we also owned an operated a successful farm raising Irish Dexter Cattle. From our herd, two national champions in the youth division were raised and Charles served on the national board of the organization.

Charles is an avid bass fisherman and fishes numerous local and regional tournaments. If you are interested in fishing Lake Keowee, Charles can provided guided bass fishing at a very reasonable cost for half-day trips.

Looking at homes on Lake Keowee? We are happy to put you in contact with a local realtor that is highly recommended by our guests. Charles can even take you around by boat to see various areas from the lakefront on a per hour basis.

Kristin loves to hike the many trails that are located close by the area. She hopes to through-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2016!

You will be greeted by both of us typically and one of us is always available to provide any assistance you may need. We know you will enjoy the home on beautiful Lake Keowee. National Geographic ranked the Jocassee Gorges area 9th out of “50 of the World's Last Great Places” The clear waters of both lakes are some of the finest in the USA.

Peaceful, scenic get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time visiting the area, hiking, golfing, visiting local street fairs and jazz night in Seneca. Everything was within a short drive, this was a ideal location to visit many different areas without traveling far. Charles & Kristen were friendly and willing to offer any assistance we needed. Their home was comfortable, clean and welcoming. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this VRBO.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable, clean, spacious two bedroom bungalow. Waking up to the sound of the birds, looking out at the natural beauty of Lake Keowee, and sitting on the spacious porch as we had our morning coffee, was a perfect way for us to relax each morning. The owners were very kind and helpful. They even recharged my IPad for me when I realized I left my charger at home. We will definitely be headed back to this little slice of heaven soon.
