BASCOM LODGE IS A RUSTIC ARTS AND CRAFTS MOUNTAIN LODGE BUILT IN THE 1930'S BY VOLUNTEERS FROM THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS. 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 CENTERPIECE OF A 12,500 ACRE WILDERNESS PARK AND IN 2017 WILL CELEBRATE IT'S 80th SEASON OF OPERATION.

LOCATED IN THE NORTHWESTERN CORNER OF MASSACHUSETTS, IN THE HEART OF BERKSHIRE COUNTY, A SHORT DRIVE FROM WILLIAMSTOWN TO THE NORTH AND PITTSFIELD, LENOX AND LEE TO THE SOUTH, THE LODGE IS EASILY ACCESSIBLE FROM BOTH BOSTON (MASS PIKE) AND NEW YORK CITY (THE TACONIC PARKWAY).

ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO PROVIDE HEARTY SOULS IN SEARCH OF ADVENTURE AND SPIRITUAL RENEWAL WITH A PLACE TO REST AND TO 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 BE HIKERS AND 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 NURISH THE BODY.
