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 County

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.

Live like Hemingway in a secluded 1930's lodge in the Silver Lake Hills.

What can I say, other than perfect. Great location, great kitchen with a vintage working stove, working fireplace. Like summer camp but much more luxurious. We didn't want to leave but walking around the hills revealed some incredible 30's and mid-century architecture. Gisele is fantastic and an encyclopedia of the area. Would we return? You bet.

Perfect and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gisele and Guy for a safe and comfortable stay for my tenant Chris and his pets Diego & Tinsel. Your property was quiet, convenient and very safe/secure. I was worried about displacing him while my own property was being serviced but your hospitality and cute lodge was the perfect remedy. Highly recommended! Thank you so much!

Comfort and character

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at the Dahlia Lodge because of the great reviews, and the photos promised a comfortable space in the midst of greenery. The Lodge delivered on its promises and then some. The decor completely suits my taste, consisting largely of vintage furniture and accessories as opposed to the usual Ikea fare. The kitchen, bath, and large living/bedroom are thoughtfully and generously outfitted with everything we needed for our stay—including a cupboard and refrigerator with enough condiments, spices and hot drink fixin's to keep us going for 11 days. As for groceries, there are enough places within walking distance (or a short drive if you prefer not to walk up Silver Lakes lovely, steep hills—we like it) to suit our needs, not to mention a broad spectrum of restaurants. Street parking is easy as well.

At the top of the private garden there's a table and chairs where we spent quite a bit of time working, socializing, and relaxing. There's a good balance of sun and shade there, and it's quite peaceful.

Our hostess, Gisele, was gracious, thoughtful, and prompt in all of her communications. When we first arrived, we were met with a hand-written note from her, and fresh cut flowers in vases throughout the Lodge. Everything was spotless, but not antiseptic. This is a home-away-from home that I could return to again and again.

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.
