History of the Dacha

"Dacha" ... (da'-cha)

In Russia, a dacha is a vacation home away from the city, where family and friends go to celebrate, rest and revitalize amidst beautiful surroundings.

Dacha literally means "a gift." After the revolution, the Russian government provided small plots of land to city dwellers to build small homes and cultivate their own vegetable gardens. The dacha is a rich part of Russian history and culture.

Dacha House is owned by a Russiaphile who has traveled many times to that vast and beautiful country and wanted to create her own dacha here in the U.S. Built in the mid 1970's, the Dacha House was  converted into a vacation rental and has been available for romantic retreats and group getaways for several years now.
