Bascom Lodge
is a rustic mountain lodge built in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Designed in the classic Arts and Crafts tradition and built of native stone, red spruce and oak timbers the lodge's intimate scale, post and beam construction and generously proportioned furnishings are earmarks of the American lodge style.
Nestled on the summit of Mt. Greylock, in the first land preserve established by the state of Massachusetts, the lodge is the flagship property of the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Surrounded by 12,000 acres of woodlands, the lodge provides hikers and nature enthusiasts with easy access to mountain trails, cliffs, wetlands, waterfalls and overlooks, with 100-mile vistas of four states and five mountain ranges.

 


One step inside Bascom Lodge and you are enveloped in the romance and elegance of Victorian-era adventure. Escape the pressures of the 9-to-5 world, refresh your spirit on the trail or curl up with a good book by the glow of a crackling fire while the sultry sounds of a saxophone drifts through the lobby.
Bascom Lodge is the perfect setting for a weekend get-away from the city or a mid-week adventure with the kids. Where else can you look out your bedroom window an watch the sun rise over the Berkshire Mountains, just below you. Nowhere else in Southern New England can you enjoy your first cup of morning coffee while exploring the edges of a Northern Boreal Forrest.
