About Louise Senneff

Stu and Louise Senneff. Stu grew up in south Florida and Louise in west Texas, but we now live in southwest Florida.

Louise Senneff purchased this house in 1995

Why Louise Senneff chose Hiawassee

Stu's parents built this house and we inherited it. Our family has spent many happy times here before and since, and we love the mountains and the lake. We want to keep the house for our family to continue to build more memories and to share this great place with others.

What makes this house unique

Truly, the lake and the mountains, whatever time of year you come, will call you back. Sit out in the screen room, or dangle your legs over the dock, or shuffle your feet through the bright autumn leaves walking in the fog, or snuggle up next to the fire and watch the snow won't matter, you will be taken by the beauty and the peace and the history of this place, by the fun times you will have while you are here and by the desire to return for more.

Perfect family lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 in our party. The house had plenty of room, great location, beautiful lake. We basically lived in the water for 5 days. The kids had an absolute blast. We planned to day trip into Helen or other local places but had such a great time at the lake that we only went 1 day. We ended up tubing the chatahoochie river, and visiting babyland general hospital, but were eager to get back to the house to spend time on the screened in porch and swimming. The place was well stocked, games (indoor and out), plenty of towels and linens for our large group, cabinets and closets were labeled (which I haven't encountered before but thoroughly appreciated), local menus, etc. We're already planning our return trip. Oh, the sunsets, birdwatching in the yard, and watching the fish swim around the dock were seriously unbeatable. We truly appreciate you sharing your home with us. We made some seriously amazing memories.

Great house on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The home was really clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We brought our boat and having the dock made it so nice to be able to get up early and head out to fish! We would definately stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! We try hard to think of what you might need during your stay and make it available. Having the dock right there is nice, isn’t It? Fishing on the lake is true relaxation....

Best stocked House ever rented

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Thanksgiving with our large family. It was perfect for us. Large yard for the kids to play in and great game room for ping pong competitions. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you could need (including crockpot!) and had new modern appliances. Nice comfortable beds and plenty of towels. Only regret was we didn’t get to use fireplace as it had a sign that it was closed for the summer and the pilot light was not lit. Everything was labeled which made it easy for us. I would love to rent it in the summer to use the large screen porch or sit on the deck overlooking the lake.

Beautiful, Clean and Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this beautiful house! We had 4 children with us and they had a blast playing in the yard and with all of the games in the basement!

The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed in order to make our meals.

The location is perfect. Not too far from hiking trails, Helen, etc.

We had a wonderful stay! Thank you!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful views and the fact that we were close to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The screened in porch was our favorite spot to hang out. We also enjoyed having a gas grill on property. Beautiful morning views and lots of geese coming and going during the day. Well stocked kitchen, even spices and oils.
