About Gisele Plouffe
Hi! We are Gisele Plouffe and Guy Keller and are the owners of this property. We also live on the premises. Gisele is a local real estate agent at Sotheby's International Realty in Los Feliz, and Guy is a General Contractor. Silver Lake has been our home for about 15 years and we love it here. Gisele is an LA native and Guy is a mid-west transplant of 30 years, which makes him a native as well. The other resident of the property is our cat 'Pepi le pew'. He can be seen roaming the property. The two of us have restored many property's back to their original glory. Dahlia Lodge is just one of them. It is our passion to bring these old residences back to life!
Gisele Plouffe purchased this Lodge in 2011
Why Gisele Plouffe chose Silver Lake
Los Angeles as well as Silver Lake is our home. We LOVE it here! We chose this area because it has a great diversity of people, architecture, history, art, cafes, restaurants, and nature. We are close to downtown, midtown and the beach. We can be in the desert in a couple of hours, any local beaches or skiing on snow in the same amount of time. We have it all here along with great weather.
What makes this Lodge unique
When we first bought this property, everyone that walked into the Lodge said 'WOW'. It has that 'WOW' factor! We bought it from a mature lady who had let the lodge run down, Guy & I lovingly restored it back to its original glory. It is surrounded by windows on all sides and the sunset views are beautiful from there. We know anyone staying there will enjoy it and return to stay.

Nice place for visit .
As advertised. Would visit again.
Cozy and romantic while still great for hosting small family dinners
The property was exactly as described and we found it just as charming as we had hoped. The location was convenient and it was great that we could walk to a small grocery just five minutes or so away. It was cozy and sweet for our 28th wedding anniversary but dining areas (kitchen and patio) seated four, so we were about to host our two sons for meals. The patio was our favorite spot - kudos to the gardener. Thanks for everything - we loved our stay!
Fantastic lodge in the best neighborhood
I had an excellent time. Giselle is a fantastic host. I hate to leave.
And would return to stay here again.
Lodge in Silver Lake
A lot of character to this place. Very hidden amongst the foliage from the street and quiet. The Al Fresco dining/relaxing area was quite nice. It's an easy walk down to the commercial area (several blocks), but quite steep coming back. No issue with street parking. Kitchen very Clean.
Cozy in a Cool Neighborhood
The Lodge was very comfortable -- small, but well equipped. Bed was comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped and quite usable.
This home is located in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. Silver Lake is in the East Hollywood Hills area of LA. Forbes magazine called Silver Lake number one of 'America's Best Hipster neighborhoods'. Celebrated modernist as well as varied architecture, local farmers markets, shops and cafes are everywhere. A multicultural blend of residents with electric professionals and a booming arts scene.
The Lake (which is a reservoir in City terms) has a walking path surrounding it, with a dog park and recreation center at the South end. Local attractions include the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, LA Zoo, Greek Theater, Hollywood walk of fame, and Hollywood & Highland. Silver Lake is also Downtown LA close, for the many attractions to be seen there.
The owners live on the property as well, and are available to recommend good eating spots and many local must sees!
The home is situated North of Sunset Boulevard in a lovely residential neighborhood. It is walking distance to the farmers market, as well as cafe's, eateries and bars.
