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 View in the Path of Totality 2017

  • 5 of 5

We drove up from south Alabama to get into the path of totality for the eclipse at Dogwood Hill and could not have picked a better place!! The home is so big you can almost get lost in it and the backyard going down to the lake is huge as well. We spent tons of time on the screened in porch looking out over the lake and mountains in the mornings and evenings and never got tired of watching geese eat the crab apples in the yard. We grilled hamburgers on the gas grill which worked perfectly. The area down by the lake with the fire pit had a perfect unobstructed view of the sky with one nice big shade tree for the older folks to sit under. Inside the house was cool and comfortable, everybody slept well so the beds were all in great shape and the kitchen had every utensil and dish we needed and more. We could definitely tell the owners had gone out of their way to make sure renters were happy and entertained. Our family would definitely return for another event and recommend to others.

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.

There is such a wide variety of things to do in the area, from winery trails to horseback riding, to 'antiqueing', to autumn foliage, to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, great restaurants, and of course the lake and watersports. What a gorgeous and entertaining place, any season of the year!
