About 10 of us use the lodge for long weekend in June and September to setup, operate and teardown a major ham radio contest operation.

We stay in one of the bunk rooms and eat in the lodge.

The lodge is a classic 1930 stone and timber lodge, built to survive the mountain location. The dinner restaurant serves the best local ingredients, impeccably prepared on a fixed menu for the night. The definitely cater to special dietary needs.

It's a great throw back experience to go on a long journey, sit in simple, rugged surroundings, eat excellent food, and enjoy the environment.

The weather can be dense fog in the clouds or crystal clear views for 100 miles. Either way, you know you are not in the usual environment.

After dinner there is usually a fire in the fireplace and an eclectic group sitting around talking.

My Husband and I stayed overnight to celebrate our anniversary and it was just amazing! The atmosphere and the staff of Bascom Lodge were all soon kind! Upon arrival we checked in with Phil who was the sweetest gentleman ever! The wine and beer social was soo relaxing by the fire listening to some live music.. Just an awesome time away from all the hustle and bustle of city life. The only thing I didn't care for was the shared bathrooms other than that our stay was perfect! Our room was soo cute and cozy! we will defiantly be back in the fall for one more stay before it closes for the season..

What awesome views of Berkshire County in a 360 degree view. Lots of hikers doing the A. T. Sit around at night and listen to the stories from the trail. Very pretty place. Don't forget to go inside the tower and go to the top. That view is worth the trip.

Drove up Mt Greylock hoping the clouds would break, no luck with that. The lodge is beautiful and cozy, lunch and hot beverages are available. The fire place and sitting area is very cozy. Rooms are available and would make a nice place to stay if one is inclined to do some hiking and exploring.

They serve breakfast (from 8am), lunch and dinner. Dinner is by reservation only but definitively a must try. They have events through the summer that you can enjoy with a drink (5-7pm). One of the best outdoor views of Massachusetts.
