About Keith

I am a lifelong Carolinea boy, having grown up in NC and then living in SC since 1981.

Keith purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Keith chose Charleston Area

Toogoodoo Bluff is so unique and special. It offers an authenic Lowcountry experience and not just another beach week. The structures are all very historic and meticuously renovated. The high bluff overlooking the river and marshes are therapeutic. Toogoodoo Bluff is not a place, it is an experience.

What makes this farmhouse unique

As previously stated, Toogoodoo Bluff is not just another week at the beach even though we are only a short drive to Edisto Beach. It allows for groups to be together without having to be together in a single structure.

Great experience

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion comprised of 6 adults, 2 college students and two secondary students. There was plenty to entertain us all - the adults especially enjoyed the peace and quiet. The location is great with a boat dock and covered deck to enjoy the Toogooloo creek. Boating and fishing were most popular, but it was also great to watch the wildlife in or around the creek, including a pod of dolphins. The three houses are different, each with its own unique decor, and were well-stocked and comfortable. We had a couple of maintenance problems while there, but the owner was quick to try to correct these. In fact, our only suggestion for improvement would be a few minor maintenance issues (the only reason for the 4 rather than 5 star rating)..

Rustic chic lodging with outstanding marsh.views.

  • 5 of 5

Held annual weekend business retreat with board members of professional society. 14 people attended from as far west as Hawaii and as far

east as Connecticut. To a person, all had a wonderful time-appreciated the lodging, grounds, and surrounding scenic beauty. Owner Keith was hospitable and answered all questions/addressed all need. Quick run to local grocery helped with any items "left behind" on arrival. Close enough to downtown Charleston (30 minute drive) that we were able to cap a very relaxing and productive weekend with a Saturday late afternoon/early evening trip into Charleston for siteseeing and a group dinner at a great restaurant. Would recommend this place to anyone seeing a laid back site for a personal or business retreat involving 10-15 people. Outstanding!!!

Owner's Response: It was an honor to have this group of medical professionals from across the country to stay at Toogoodoo Bluff. Besides being such nice people, I was inspired to learn of their vital role in improving health care.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Toogoodoo Bluff! It was a bit more rustic than we were expecting, but once we got past the old house quirks, we thought it was the perfect place for our group of 14 to stay. Keith, the owner, was fantastic. The second night we were there we found out the grill wasn't working properly. We called Keith the next day and he brought out a brand new grill. Any time we called him for something, he cheerfully and quickly responded. Our favorite part was the covered dock. The kids were out there non-stop fishing, canoeing, and crabbing. We saw dolphins every morning. One morning we saw a mama and baby dolphin swim by and about 15 minutes later, a small alligator swam by. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 70 and every one of us loved it!
