Dream Away Lodge Reopening in 2023 Under New Ownership

Staff ReportsPrint Story | Email Story

BECKET, Mass. — The historic Dream Away Lodge is expected to reopen in the spring under new ownership.

It was announced on Sunday that former owner Daniel Osman sold the restaurant to The Dreamaway Lodge RE LLC. 

The plan is to bring back everything that the Dream Away is known for and make it even better.

"The intention is to return the Dream Away to service and to offer all the things we did before but even better — great food, great music, a beautiful place to make a wedding, retreat, or private event, an awesome outing for you and your friends, your partner, your lover, your grandma or your kids," according to a press release from the new owner.

"The Dream Away will once again be the Berkshire's magical spot — so close and yet so far, the secret place your either know about or don't!"

The new ownership group is reportedly comprised of Scott Levy, Sheryl Victor Levy, Daniel Giddings and April Wilson, with Scott Levy the signatory on the limited liability corporation's registration. The purchase closed last Tuesday for $615,000 according to documents on file with the Middle Berkshire Registry of Deeds. 

The storied Dream Away Lodge featured numerous folksingers and songwriters in its nearly 100-year history, including Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan.

It closed during the pandemic and Daniel Osman, its owner for the past quarter-century, recently put it up for sale. It includes the 200-year-old farmhouse, restaurant, music/event room, and grounds.

Earlier this year, the property was subject to a glamping proposal but after loud opposition from residents, the applicants withdrew the special permit application.

More information is expected to come soon. Employment inquiries can be sent to hello@thedreamaway.com.
