About Lorie Senn

I grew up near Lake Greenwood, SC and this property has been in my family for as long as I can remember. I have been a child, young parent, and now a grandparent in this house. Countless family reunions, fishing weekends, and summer vacations have been spent here and this house is filled with wonderful memories.

Lorie Senn purchased this cabin in 1955

Why Lorie Senn chose Chappells

This property has been in my family since my parents built the house in 1955. The house is rustic, homey, and comfortable (but NOT fancy). It is perfect for families or groups of friends, and there are multiple seating areas to accomodate all ages. The lot is gently sloping (nearly flat), and there are both grassy and shaded areas. It is a great yard for both play and parking.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is on a large 4+ acre lot with approx. 400 feet of lakefront. Unlike some lakefront land, our lot is gently sloping (nearly flat) so no steep walks to and from the water. The private dock is great for swimming or fishing off of. The lake can be viewed from several rooms of the house and from the new deck.

Had an awesome time the property was well appointed, right on the lake with a boat!

The boat ramp was big enough for my son in laws pontoon boat. Can’t wait to return. Be ready for a country experience cause this isn’t the rental to be near everything except the lake!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back soon! The house was clean, kitchen well stocked, very private, beautiful view. If you want country living and good fishing I would recommend staying here. From the private dock, we caught 5 bass, 1 striper, 1 catfish, 1 brim. We also rented a pontoon from Twin Rivers Landing and would recommend using them. Lorie was quick to respond and accommodating. The only thing I would suggest to the owners would be, invest in a gas grill. Our trip was great without it, I'm just not a fan of a charcoal grill. If your looking for a place to spend quality time with friends and family this is perfect! We appreciate everything Lorie, we will be back soon!

We had a great time at Senn Sational Memories Lake House! The house was perfect for our families. We loved at all the furnishings, decor and learning about the history of the land and home. The house was perfectly stocked with everything you can imagine and the location was perfect. Thanks so much for a terrific weekend!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home on Lake Greenwood! Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 year old twin girls. The girls LOVED jumping from the dock and swimming in the lake as did the grown ups :-) We also took advantage of the fire pit area where the views of the lake were awesome! we loved the home decor, it was not only cute and vintage but had just about everything we needed from the kitchen, to the toys/games, to the extra towels. After just the first night we were already talking about coming back, and will hopefully be able to next year. Thank you so much for sharing the home!
