A Hidden Gem…
Established in 1969, Tom Bewley saw a “diamond in the rough” when he purchased the 50-acre parcel in Brunswick with nothing more than an old barn and a dream. The barn, originally built in 1869, became the foundation for what he envisioned would be a Ski Lodge, but would ultimately become the event center that it is today. Although many updates and renovations have taken place over the last 50 years the original barn remains intact, and its beams are still visible in the hall.
Tom’s dream originated while he was stationed in the Garmisch Alps during his tour of duty with the Army in WWII. It was there that he fell in love with the chalet architecture, steep banks, & rolling hills that were perfect for skiing.
When Tom bought the property, he brought some of that style to Brunswick and began creating his vision. With the help of his son Gary Bewley, he brought that vision to life by shaping the landscape and resurrecting the old barn to emulate a ski chalet.
It was then that the hall rental business was born, and Gary began managing the business operations. Over the years Skyview Lodge has held countless events and has been called home by numerous organizations including churches, dance studios, karate dojo’s, yoga studios, and theater troupes.
With Tom’s vision in mind the building was renovated again in 2001 to expand its capacity and continue building upon the success of the hall rentals. Gary, now President & Owner, continues to build the dream that his father envisioned over 50 years ago, along with help from his son’s Jordan & Tyler. Skyview Lodge heads into its 3rd generation of family ownership & tradition with big plans on the horizon!
