The Accommodation

Captivating views of Mystic Mountain and a peaceful private setting greets you at 'The Dacha', the Russian term for one's second home in the country.

And we would love you to make ‘our dacha’ yours, for a weekend, a week or longer!

This stunning property, located in the beautiful Wandiligong Valley just 4.5 km from the Bright township, is nestled in the foothills of the Victorian Alps, which for those wanting to hit the slopes, the premier Mount Hotham and Falls Creek ski fields are only an hour’s drive away, makes the Dacha the perfect base for snow enthusiasts!

And for the cycling devotees, there is a 92-km sealed cycle path almost at your doorstep, leading from Wandiligong through to Wangaratta via Bright, also known as “the Rail Trail”.

A large, elevated private deck faces Mystic Mountain and the crystal clear water of Morses Creek, ensuring the Dacha’s indoor and alfresco living areas make for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Completely self-contained for your convenience, it is a chef’s dream with European appliances for the cooking enthusiast to enjoy. Or for those wanting to escape the kitchen and just chill out in the tranquil, private setting of the Wandiligong Valley, you can indulge at one of the many award-winning restaurants in beautiful Bright or at one of the region's finest wineries.

The Dacha has everything you could want:

3 king-sized bedrooms (can sleep up to 6 people), each with private ensuite and TV - Bed 3 can be split to two singles if preferred


Complimentary "Marine Spa" bathroom amenities provided

Linen and fresh towels supplied

An open-plan living area with wood fireplace

Dream home! - What a beautiful home. Toni and Erwin have really thought of every little detail and my husband and I didn't want to leave! The stunning views outside, the beautiful interiors, warming up by the fire after each day at Falls Creek. Just perfect! We can't wait to stay there again soon!

Vicki - July 2017

Stunning Property - We just arrived home from a wonderful 3 night stay at the beautiful Dacha. The property has everything you need for a fabulous stay and the hosts, Toni and Erwin provide lots of lovely little touches. It is an easy and close drive to Bright village and a good base for a cheeky trip to Mt Hotham for some snow play.

Clarissa - May 2017

Perfect Stay -  This is a beautiful home with a stunning outlook in a peaceful location. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal and then relax in front of the open fire and play board games. Each room has it's own bathroom and is completely private, which makes it a great place to stay with a group of friends or family without getting on each others nerves. I highly recommend and we plan to return next year! :)

Lyndel - May 2017

Home away from Home - We absolutely loved this house. The location is perfect if you are after an escape from city life and all day to day pressures. The home environment created is luxurious and cosy with beautiful views to the mountains. Every creature comfort has been thought of and for that, we were eternally grateful!

Annette - March 2017

Superb property and location - We have just had several days staying at the Dacha with 2 other couples and had a wonderful time. The house has everything a group of people would need and the facilities are beautifully presented and clean. Highly recommend The Dacha when visiting the Bright region.

First class hospitality - Our most relaxing holiday in a very long time. Faultless property, hospitality and setting. Highly recommended because whatever it says it provides, it does and more...

Graeme - January 2017

The Best - Everything about this house is perfect! One of the best holiday rentals you will find in the region.

Sam - December 2016 

Top Notch - There were so many great things about staying at the Dacha. The entire house was luxurious, with a beautiful ensuite for every room and huge comfortable beds. The kitchen was fabulous and had everything we needed. The view from the deck was just awe inspiring. It was very convenient having a drying room off the laundry for wet clothes. The whole house was beautiful, very clean and well appointed. We don't often return to the same holiday house, but in this case I am looking forward to staying at the Dacha again.

Dennis - November 2016

Excellent - Tasteful décor and well equipped. With a backdrop of the mountains and paragliders decending from above, sitting on the deck enjoying lunch with a nice local wine was memorable. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. All necessary kitchen and other equipment, including a coffee machine, was available and in good condition. The welcoming bottle of local red was a treat. The bike track to/from Bright and environs is directly at the rear of the property making it very easy to drop head down to the village for a coffee or lunch, or perhaps a taste of the local beer at the Bright Brewery. A great weekend with friends for some laughs over old school photo's. Would recommend The Dacha as a great place to stay no matter what time of the year.

Lisa - October 2016

Love Love Love The Dacha. Toni and Erwin have set up the most beautiful getaway and haven't forgotten a thing in this magnificent home away from home. Even though the weather was average, with the fire going you wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Definitely going back.

Prags - October 2016

A Fabulous Property! We had a wonderful stay at The Dacha. The property was pristine, well maintained, modern and fresh. Everything was of the highest standard and we loved spending time out on the deck with it's breathtaking view of the mountains. Both Toni and Erwin have thought of everything one could possibly want on a luxurious getaway! The beds were comfortable and linen fresh and clean: better than most 5* hotels! We loved our stay and will definitely return!

Tash - September 2016

Everything you would want in a house We stayed at this amazing house with my mother and sister and couldn't have asked for anything better the attention to detail the little touches and the very warm welcome along with the beautiful countryside and Autumn colours

Jacqui - May 2016

First class accommodation! This is one of the best places I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The house is beautiful from the location, furnishings, fittings and extra touches. We had 3 couples stay and a bedroom and bathroom for each couple was perfect. Could not fault this accommodation in any way.

Anthony - April 2016

Dazzling Dacha! I have not stayed in any accommodation that has impressed like the Dacha. From its beautiful décor, its outstanding facilities, the complimentary goodies, superb fireplace and the great location make visiting this place a must! It is spotlessly clean and very easy to spend long hours out on the decking overlooking the landscape. We are recommending it to all our family and friends and will definitely be back. Toni and Erwin are also excellent to deal with.

Stacey - April 2016

Beautiful property So gorgeous and relaxing! This is a beautiful place to take a moment and soak up the mountains. The amazing handcrafted furniture and openness of the property gave a luxurious feel. A very big thank you to the accommodating owners who went above and beyond to make our wedding stay extra special. Very appreciative!!! We will be back!

Ellen - April 2016

Myself & my partner stayed at the Dacha with two other couples for a wedding down in Bright & I would highly recommend the Dacha. It's absolutely beautiful, both inside & out with the most stunning views of the mountains & country side right at your back door. Very spacious bedrooms & everyone has their own stunning ensuite which we loved! Immaculately kept & Toni & Erwin are lovely to deal with. We will definitely be back :)

Judy - March 2016

house is beautifully furnished with every mod con. The bathrooms in particular exceeded our expectations. There is plenty of room for 6 adults, with good sized lounges and dining table. The back deck is a lovely spot to enjoy late afternoon drinks.

Leslie - March 2016

Beautiful house, beautiful setting The Dacha couldn't have been more perfect for our stay. Finding a house for 3 couples where each bedroom is 5-star quality is not easy. Huge living area, outdoor deck with view, short distance to Bright and Mt Buffalo, and hosts who couldn't have been more obliging. Magic!

Mark - February 2016

Tops. Sitting on the back patio listening to the sounds and enjoying the view was therapy for the mind and soul

Jill - January 2016

Excellent Accommodation This is our 4th year at the Dacha and it is just amazing, a truly beautiful place to stay. We cant wait to return in 2017!!

Melissa - January 2016

Simply stunning!! Toni and Erwin have excelled in their presentation of The Dacha. The house is beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and immaculate throughout. The setting is relaxing, quiet and the prefect escape.
