Nestled in the hills of Silver Lake but just a quick five minute stroll to the epicenter of Silver Lake, Sunset Junction, this two bedroom, two bathroom house offers a taste of the real, local, Silver Lake life with an idyllic spa deck to retreat to.
Comfortable, cozy, chic, and complete in the hippest location in LA - nestled quietly in the Silver Lake's hills but only two blocks (five minutes walk) to the center of Silver Lake's "Sunset Junction"
The house is fully equipped with a kitchen with everything you need to cook or entertain, a living area and two master bedrooms suites each with their own separate and large travertine bathrooms. It comes with a large waher/dryer you can freely use, two off street parking spaces (making parking simple and hassle free) and separate entrances for both bedroom suites (ideal for two couples or for families and friends on different schedules). The house is recently renovated with blonde hardwood floors, granite counter tops, stainless appliances and mid-century modern furniture. There are two large flat-screen televisions wired for endless Netflix and of course the whole place has free high speed wifi
The communal spa deck is right outside your back door and is the secret garden of the place. Its perfect for dining alfresco, entertaining, relaxing, and unwinding after a long day of working or sightseeing. Do some yoga or meditate on the outdoor lounges, read a book, or have some wine with friends around the fire-pit in the evening. Soak up the sun or stare at the stars from the sparkling Jacuzzi. A bit of heaven right outside your back door.
Silver Lake is gaining attention as one of the hippest neighborhoods and there is so much to do in the area: Sunset Junction's trendy shops, cafe's, restaurants and hipster eateries are a five minute walk away. For those who like to walk, jog or run, join the actors and models in nearby Griffith Park, Elysian Park or the lovely Silver Lake reservoir, the body of water that gives Silver Lake its magic.
Minutes to Hollywood, Echo Park, Los Feliz, or Downtown LA, you won't find a better location. The metro is fifteen minutes walk away and accessing either Hollywood or Downtown is easy by car, bike, bus or subway. Its a quick 3 minute drive to the 101 freeway.
If you are travelling as a family or with friends this house is a great deal for a two bedroom, two bathroom house, two off street parking spaces just minutes walk to one of the hippest parts of LA.
Use the spa deck with meditation lounge, jacuzzi, fountain and day beds and relax with the butterflies and hummingbirds. This space is delightful!

A great place in Silver Lake if you are looking for a stay in Los Angeles. Great location in Silver Lake, exactly as described, and the outdoor communal area, beautiful! Peter is a great host as well, leaving us a bottle of champagne in the fridge (we had just been married a few days before). I highly recommend staying... and say hi to Deebo and Charlie for me!
The cottage was great! Walking distance to Sunset, easy access to all the food and record shopping you'd want! Peter was warm and inviting and the dogs are adorable! Well appointed bedrooms were comfy and cozy - an all around great time!
Our host welcomed us with flowers and wine waiting in the kitchen! We were so thankful for that sweet touch! The space was perfect for us. The layout was clean and simple with just the right touches. There was great lighting and clean, well-stocked bathrooms with plenty of linens. The beds were comfortable and had plenty of pillows and blankets. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was even butter and cream and other supplies that I hate to have to buy on vacation.
The patio with the hot tub was wonderful! The fountain was relaxing, the sun chairs were comfortable, and the hot tub was perfect at night. We spent most of our down time out there.
The location was great, close to everything we needed/wanted.
Peter was an excellent host, and struck the balance between welcoming and respectful of privacy perfectly. He lives in a separate building on the property with his amazing dogs and always stops to say hello and check if we need anything without ever being overbearing. On arrival there was a bottle of wine and fresh flowers, I'm not sure if it was because I was celebrating my birthday or if everyone gets such great treatment!
The property was well-equipped with everything we needed and the location was faultless- the vast majority of Silver Lake was easily walkable and there were plenty of amazing places to eat and drink nearby. Peter also provided a comprehensive list of bars and restaurants in his manual which also proved to be a nice touch.
Peter was a wonderful host. It was like being at home away from home. We were so busy that we seldom got to use the amenities available at Moore Cottage, but we
loved being in a neighborhood where we could actually be a part of LA. Thanks, Peter. We hope to see you and Moore Cottage again!
Peter was the most gracious host! He left us a bottle of wine and a couple of beers, fresh cut flowers and the best guide to Silver Lake letter EVER!!! (Peter is a witty writer with impeccable insight into Silver Lake's restaurants and other destinations) Our cottage was cozy and better than the pictures, perfect location, we loved the patio and fresh jasmine in bloom after the rain. There were 2 double beds and all the amenities you could hope for being away from home.(shampoo, conditioner, condiments, coffee, sugar etc…Could have been from the last tenants. We left butter, rice and few other staples too.) The best part of our stay was Peter and his beautiful dogs, Debo and Charlie. Peter shared them with us, because we really missed our 3 at home. They are the sweetest dogs and we are so grateful to Peter for letting us hang out with them on the patio. I would highly recommend staying at any of his listings. We definitely will again.
Peter was a great host and had the friendliest dogs. He left some beer and bottled water for us in the fridge and a bottle of wine which was such a nice touch. He left suggestions of restaurants and other places nearby which was nice since we weren't really familiar with the area. The house was exactly the way it looked in the pictures and was the perfect size for 4 people. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. It was nice to have access to the hot tub too. My friends and I had a great weekend in LA and Peter's place was the perfect retreat at the end of the day.
