Luxurious Self Contained 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.
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 at the premier Mount Hotham or Falls Creek ski fields, 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 Murray-to-Mountains Rail Trail”.
A large elevated private deck faces Mystic Mountain and the crystal clear water of Morses Creek ensures 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.

The Dacha is a flawlessly presented place where two days stay just didn’t seem enough to my family ☺️ We are back with beautiful memories of the views, the warmth of the fireplace and the nicely stocked kitchen. Bright has taken a special place in our hearts and we’ll surely return. Thanks for looking after us so well.

We stayed at The Dacha for 3 nights with our 2 kids and are already planning our next trip back. The home was impeccably clean and beautifully presented. It is well appointed, everything we needed was there for us. The owners were easily contactable and very nice. We enjoyed having a wine by the fire and the morning view of the frost from the back deck was so beautiful. It’s in a lovely area, we did a big bush walk from the house and the kids loved exploring the park and bridges nearby. Bright is a beautiful town and we are very much looking forward to coming back, we will definitely be staying at The Dacha. Thanks for having us.

The Dacha is an immaculately presented home that has everything you could possibly want for a weekend away. From the breakfast supplies, the toiletries, the well appointed kitchen, firewood to the little chocolates on your bed and bottle of red wine, you will want for nothing when you stay here. Toni and Erwin are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. We have stayed twice with our family and will definitely be back again.

Wow what a fabulous experience we had at The Dacha. As you walk into the house, each area from the kitchen, down to the bathroom, and study is set out with everything you possibly need,- quality pans to cook, top of the range oven to cook with, beautiful bath salts left next to the bath. The outdoor setting is beautiful and cosy for a mild day, and sitting inside on a cold night in front of the fire is just bliss. The quality and presentation of this house is amazing and the owners are just a pleasure to deal with. Well done on providing such a lovely rental for everyone to stay at!

Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped, lovely furnishings and comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. Bright has many cafes and restaurants. Walker brothers and Feathertop Winery at Porepunkah were fantastic. The Dacha is nice to spend an afternoon at in front of the fire. We highly recommend.

Truly Devine - We had such a lovely stay at the Dacha. I cannot fault this house, it’s warm and in inviting not like other accommodations because it feels like a home. It has everything you need along with an amazing deck and stunning views. The kitchen is a cooks dream and lounge room takes full advantage of the views. Such a wonderful holiday, we will be coming to stay again for sure.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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
