BASCOM LODGE IS A RUSTIC ARTS AND CRAFTS MOUNTAIN LODGE BUILT DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION BY VOLUNTEERS FROM THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS. NAMED IN HONOR OF THE RESERVATION'S FIRST COMMISSIONER, AN ARDENT PROPONATE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A LODGE BEFITTING THE GRANDEUR OF THE MOUNTAIN, BASCOM WAS DESIGNED IN AN ARCHITECTURAL STYLE THAT WOULD LATER BECOME AN INSPIRATION FOR MANY OF AMERICA'S NATIONAL PARKS BUILDINGS. CONSTRUCTED FROM LOCAL STONE QUARRIED FROM THE MOUNTAIN AND OLD-GROWTH RED SPRUCE TIMBERS HARVESTED FROM THE SLOPES OF THE "HOPPER," THE LODGE, AS WE SEE IT TODAY, OPENED ITS DOORS IN 1937.

NESTLED ON THE SUMMIT OF THE STATE'S HIGHEST MOUNTAIN, THE LODGE IS THE CENTERPIECE OF A 12,500 ACRE WILDERNESS PARK AND IN 2022 WILL CELEBRATE ITS 85th SEASON OF OPERATION.

ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO PROVIDE HEARTY SOULS IN SEARCH OF ADVENTURE AND SPIRITUAL RENEWAL WITH A PLACE TO REST AND TAKE SHELTER FROM THE ELEMENTS, TODAY THE LODGE SERVES A MUCH MORE COMPLEX AND DIVERSE ARRAY OF PATRONS WHOSE NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS GO BEYOND MERE ROOM AND BOARD. WHETHER THEY ARE HIKERS OR CYCLISTS OUT FOR THE DAY, LODGERS ATTENDING A MUSIC CONCERT OR SUMMER STOCK THEATER, SCHOOL CHILDREN ON A FIELD TRIP, OR "HOLIDAY MAKERS" VISITING THE BERKSHIRES FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE LODGE PROVIDES A CASUAL SETTING TO REFRESH THE SPIRIT AND NOURISH THE BODY.

ESTABLISHED IN 1898, THEBlank.jpgRESERVATION WAS THE FIRST LAND PRESERVED-IN-TRUST BY THE STATE FOR THE CITIZENS OF MASSACHUSETTS AS A WILDERNESS PARK; THE FLAGSHIP PROPERTY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND RECREATION.

AT AN ELEVATION OF 3,491 FEET, GREYLOCK DOMINATES THE SURROUNDING LANDSCAPE, "A MONARCH AMONG ITS FELLOWS," AND THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT BOREAL FOREST IN SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. TOWERING OVER THE HOOSAC VALLEY, THE MOUNTAIN'S SUMMIT AFFORDS VISITORS TO THE PARK 90-MILE VISTAS OF FOUR STATES AND FIVE MOUNTAIN RANGES.

WITH OVER 70 MILES OF WOODLAND TRAILS, INCLUDING AN 11.5 MILE SECTION OF THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL THAT PASSES WITHIN A FEW FEET OF THE LODGE'S FRONT DOOR, THE RESERVATION ENABLES GUESTS ACCESS TO A DIVERSE ARRAY OF OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES. FROM A STRENUOUS CLIMB UP THE MOUNTAIN'S EASTERN FACE TO A WALK THROUGH A SPRAWLING CLIFF-TOP LOW BUSH BLUEBERRY PATCH, THE PARK'S MANY TRAILS AND VARYING TERRAINS PROVIDE FOR AN ENDLESS VARIETY OF ADVENTURES THAT CHANGE FROM SEASON-TO-SEASON AND DAY-TO-DAY.

SO, WHETHER YOU ARE COMING TO THE BERKSHIRES TO HIKE WITHIN THE RESERVATION, WHITE WATER RAFT ON THE DEERFIELD RIVER, SPEND AN ADVENTUROUS WEEKEND IN THE TREES AT RAMBLE WILD, CATCH AN EXHIBIT AT MASS MOCA, OR TAKE IN ONE OF THE DOZENS OF MUSIC, DANCE, OR THEATER FESTIVALS HELD IN THE COUNTY EACH SEASON, BASCOM IS THE PLACE TO STAY BECAUSE, IN THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER, -

" IT'S COOL UP HERE."
