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 Los Angeles area

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.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This little lodge is a charming place for 2 people to stay. Although it's small, we enjoyed entertaining 2 friends for dinner. We were especially drawn to the outdoor patio nestled in the back where we had coffee in the afternoon. Gisele is a wonderful and attentive owner. She responds quickly to any inquiries.

Secret hideaway in the heart of Silver Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at this beauty of a rental. Each time was spectacular. The secret garden in the backyard is amazing and Gisele is a wonderful host. We had all we needed throughout our stay. We have also stayed at her other rentals, all equally beautiful and comfortable. We will for sure be back! Thanks Gisele:)

Quaint and comfortable accommodations in a vibrant and funky neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at the Dahlia Lodge on several occasions and have always enjoyed my stay. If you're looking to experience the LA of old, Silver Lake and environs will be to your delight. Dahlia Lodge is perfectly located: close to amenities but in a quiet corner. Would recommend to any of my friends.

Absolutely perfect!

The Lodge was exactly what we were hoping for, it felt like a mountaintop retreat in the middle of la. We will definitely be back, thanks Gisele!

Location

Car: recommended

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.
