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.

A Tranquil Los Angeles Oasis

  • 5 of 5
What an enchanting gem this place is! You enter through a street-level gate, then follow meandering steps down to this charming hidden lodge that was built in the 1930s. The inviting living area is reminiscent of an idyllic mountain lodge with gorgeous wood-paneled walls, exposed ceiling beams and rich mahogany floors, with a cozy gas fireplace as a centerpiece. It is the perfect combination of old-world charm with its many antiques, combined with modern amenities such as a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, well-equipped kitchen with eating area, and updated bathroom with ample hot water. We were greeted by a friendly note and helpful instructions from the owner and several cheerful bouquets of fresh flowers and quickly felt right at home. There is a private patio area off the kitchen where we enjoyed peaceful breakfasts while taking in the lush scenery of the neighborhood. Silver Lake is a vibrant area of Los Angeles and there are many fun restaurants and stores on Sunset Boulevard within easy walking distance of the lodge. We bought staples from Yummy.com, had tasty French cuisine at Cafe Stella, flavorful Taiwanese food at Pine & Crane, expertly prepared coffee drinks at Intelligentsia, and delicious Cuban specialties from El Cochinito. One day we simply strolled the residential streets that wound up and down and around the Silver Lake neighborhood which was an architectural and horticultural feast for the eyes. During our stay, we had the opportunity to chat with the owner, Gisele, and she was very friendly and hospitable and eager to make sure our time at the lodge was as pleasant as possible. This was definitely one of the most enjoyable VRBO experiences we've ever had, and we highly recommend this Silver Lake gem to anyone wanting a unique and comfortable oasis in which to stay while visiting L.A.!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I rented Lodge for two months during an extended business trip and really enjoyed the place. It's very quiet and parking is always available--two really important factors for me. Loved the northwoods feeling of the decor and the backyard patio makes it feel more spacious. Highly recommended.

This cosy getaway in the heart of Silver Lake was immaculate and well equipped. The host and hostess were responsive to a temporary problem. It was a charming and comfortable hideaway and an easy walk to many restaurants and the heart of Silver Lake.

This is a lovely, apartment with loads of personality (big wood beams, old fireplace) in a great location in the lush green hills of Silver Lake. Although, it is a studio (the bed is in the main room), it is actually quite a big place (there's also plenty of space for a sofa, two big chairs, bookcases etc) and can easily accommodate two people without them getting under each others' feet. Everything was clean, there's a great cooker if you don't fancy a meal out and there were plenty of glasses, cups, plates, etc. The big bonus is the quiet, private patio, which has a table and enough chairs for four to enjoy a glass of wine and the views of Silver Lake.

Dahlia Lodge: Beautiful, Clean, Romantic, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
I spent 3 nights here with my partner. When searching/booking I felt we took a risk because the amateur photos showcased a dark, rustic apartment which I didn't equate with Los Angeles. BUT that was also the reason I chose it- I wanted to stay in a place that had character and warmth- something different. From visiting LA before, I knew that I liked the Silver Lake area and honestly wanted to feel what it is like to live there since that will probably never happen.

I can't stress enough how beautiful everything was. I loved coming back after meetings or shopping and just walking down steps through the garden path to the front door. Inside was GORGEOUS. The dark wood tones and the antique furniture were complimented perfectly with Gisele's decorating. I loved absolutely EVERYTHING- from the bedding to the vintage stove in the bright & airy kitchen, which btw, leads to steps up to a private veranda.

The kitchen was stocked with ALL the necessities and the thoughtful owners left us a fruit bowl with a nice card. We did not meet them, but when I couldn't find the remote to the ceiling fan, I texted Gisele and she responded immediately.

We were around the corner from Millie's and so many other great restaurants and shopping.

Photos do NOT do the Dahlia Lodge justice. It was perfect in every way and hope to stay there again.
