Lodge: Bascom Lodge on Mount Greylock

Bascom Lodge is a rustic stone and wood building at the summit Mount Greylock, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s on the Appalachain Trail to provide accommodations for hikers, vacationers and nature enthusiasts.

The Lodge and roads to the summit open to the public from May to October. In its open season, the lodge has private and group rooms available for overnight stays; and hosts workshops, performances, and talks, throughout the summer and fall.

The large dining room with its high ceiling and hand-cut oak beams provides an ideal atmosphere for a meal and the enclosed porch with wraparound windows overlooks the finest views in the Berkshires. Stone fireplaces create a relaxing setting after a day of hiking.

Dinner is prix fixe, with a vegetarian option for the main course, a soup and dessert. It’s wise to rerserve ahead. They serve wine and beer on the porch.

Yankee Magazine has named it an Editor’s Choice for Best Meal with a View. The Restaurant also serves breakfast and lunch, and the lodge also hosts events and weddings.
