Senn-Sational Memories is a rustic 1950’s lakefront cabin located on a gently sloping 4 acre lot with amazing views of Lake Greenwood. The property includes a boathouse, outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day of fun in the water, a fish cleaning station, a private dock for fishing and swimming, a new private boat ramp, and a tie-up for your boat or Jet Ski. The deck on the front of the house offers perfect views out over the water and seating for 12, and the fire pit near the lake is perfect for evening marshmallow and hot dog roasting or just relaxing with friends.

The great room features a wood burning fireplace (not for usage in summer), 42” flatscreen TV and DVD/blueray player (satellite tv with limited channels), a sofa (sleeper), a love seat, and 2 comfortable upholstered chairs.

This is a rustic vintage cabin. The bedrooms and bathrooms are small but adequate for most needs. The single level house provides limited handicapped accessibility including ramp access to the house.

Pre-stocking of the kitchen with limited groceries can be arranged for a fee (with 24. hour advance notice).

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 Lake Greenwood

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.

Even Better the Second Time!

  • 5 of 5

SennSational Memories is our favorite place to stay on Lake Greenwood. This is our second time staying. The house has everything that you need and is in a quiet, secluded area. It has a cement boat ramp which makes it convenient if we wanted to take our boat out on the lake. We love to fish from the dock and take a swim when the heat rises. Thanks for the addition of DirectTV for when the afternoon storms came up. From the words of our little granddaughter, "but I love this house." Thank you for sharing your house; we are looking forward to our third visit.

Wonderful Week at Senn-Sational Memories

We enjoyed every single moment at your beautiful lake house! Everything from the sleeping accommodations to the well equipped kitchen and boat house was absolutely perfect. Everyone loved the paddle boat! My family and I hope to book with you again next summer. Thanks again for everything!

Great place to visit and stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed. It was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the deck on the back in the mornings and evenings while we were there.Lake Greenwood is a beautiful place to go for a vacation. We have stayed here in years before and seem to always try to return. We look forward to next year on the lake and staying at Senn lake house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves. The weather turned out to be much colder than plan. We built a fire and all sat around. We played corn throw out in the yard. Walked out on the dock - absolutely beautiful.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great getaway. Very personal feel and private. Very little traffic on that end of the lake. Dock and swimming are fantastic, and the paddleboat and water gear add to the experience. Owners were great to work with and everything is explained very clearly. Tons of movies and games to play when you not outside having fun.
