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.

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

The setting and the set up were golden. Two separate bedrooms and baths and a very comfortable great room between them with a ginormous tv and plenty of comfy seating. The kitchen was complete and easy. We had our own little patio w/chairs and bar-b-que. this unit is in the back and on a lower level of the house, but there was lots of privacy and we saw the owners (who are hospitable and welcoming) only twice...coming and going.

1st Keowee Experience

  • 5 of 5

The property is as close to being home as one can expect. Just about everything is at one's disposable, steps from the water with all manner of water toys.

The interior is most comfortable, large kitchen, terrific bedrooms, large tv and room and outside porch overlooking the lake.

The owners are very welcoming and helpful. We did not want to leave and hope to return.

The hosts made us feel right at home. Charles shared some of his knowledge about fishing the lake. The location is perfect - great restaurants, grocery and shopping at your fingertips.

Ponte Vedra beach

Hidden Treasure!! Full lower level apt w/ big TV, comfy couch, bbq, and use of dock in quiet cove.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Townson's beautiful home, and they were very gracious and helpful hosts. My husband brought his boat and was out fishing every morning and evening, and the covered dock made this very easy. During the day, we kayaked, bicycled (a lot harder than we're used to in Florida!), and floated in the lake. They provide a BBQ, which we really enjoyed using because the evenings were so beautiful and peaceful. The apartment was very comfortable, beds were wonderful, and we had a very restful vacation. The beautiful city of Greenville was less than an hour away, where there was wonderful shopping, restaurants, and gorgeous park with waterfalls and gardens. We definitely want to come back!!!

Fantastic lake Keowee experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. We were there to explore the lake as a potential location for retirement. Charles and Kris were wonderful hosts who were extremely welcoming and helpful. The suite was very comfortable and well equipped. There were 2 kayaks available for our use. The location is very convenient to shopping. Charles and Kris also provided a great recommendation and a map for a hike to one of the many waterfalls in the area. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to lake Keowee.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish of our family vacation over the 4th of July weekend The Townson's made us feel so welcomed. The home was clean and well equipped for all of our needs. The location was ideal for groceries, restaurants and marina access. We could not have asked for better hosts or a better rental experience. We will absolutely be back to rent from Charles and Kris.
