BASCOM LODGE IS A RUSTIC ARTS AND CRAFTS MOUNTAIN LODGE BUILT BY VOLUNTEERS FROM THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS IN THE 1930'S. CONSTRUCTED OF LOCAL STONE AND OLD GROWTH RED SPRUCE TIMBERS, THE LODGE WAS DESIGNED IN AN ARCHITECTURAL STYLE THAT WOULD LATER BECOME THE BLUEPRINT FOR AMERICA'S NATIONAL PARKS. NESTLED ON THE SUMMIT OF MT. GREYLOCK, THE STATE'S HIGHEST MOUNTAIN, THE LODGE IS THE CENTER- PIECE OF A 12,500 ACRE WILDERNESS PARK. CREATED IN 1898, THE RESERVATION IS THE FIRST LAND PRESERVE ESTABLISHED BY THE STATE AND THE FLAGSHIP PROPERTY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND RECREA- TION.

IN NEARLY CONTINUOUS OPERATION FOR OVER 78 YEARS, THE LODGE WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A PLACE TO REST AND TAKE SHELTER FROM THE ELEMENTS FOR HEARTY SOULS IN SEARCH OF ADVENTURE AND SPIRITUAL RENEWAL.

 



 

TODAY HOWEVER, THE LODGE SERVES A MUCH MORE COMPLEX AND DIVERSE ARRAY OF PATRONS WHOSE NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS GO BEYOND MERE ROOM AND BOARD. FROM HIKERS AND CYCLISTS OUT FOR THE DAY, LODGERS ATTENDING A MUSIC CONCERT OR SUMMER STOCK THEATER, SCHOOL CHILDREN ON A FIELD TRIP, TO "HOLIDAY MAKERS" VISITING THE BERKSHIRES FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE LODGE PROVIDES A CASUAL SETTING TO REFRESH THE SPIRIT AND NURISH THE BODY.
