THE LODGE

     NESTLED ON THE SUMMIT OF THE STATE'S HIGHEST MOUNTAIN, BASCOM LODGE CROWNS THE CENTERPIECE OF A 12,500 ACRE WILDERNESS PARK. NAMED IN HONOR OF JOHN BASCOM, THE RESERVATION'S FIRST COMMISSIONER AND AN ARDENT PROPONENT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A LODGE BEFITTING THE GRANDEUR OF THE MOUNTAIN, THE LODGE CELEBRATED IT'S 85TH SEASON OF OPERATION IN 2022.  BUILT AT THE HEIGHT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION BY VOLUNTEERS IN THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS., THE LODGE WAS DESIGNED IN AN ARCHITECTURAL STYLE THAT WOULD LATER BECOME AN INSPIRATION FOR MANY OF AMERICA'S NATIONAL PARK 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 IT'S DOORS IN 1937.

     ORIGINALLY BUILT 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  CONCERT OR SUMMER STOCK THEATER, SCHOOL CHILDREN ON A FIELD TRIP, OR "HOLIDAY MAKERS" VISITING THE BERKSHIRES FOR THE FIRST TIME, BASCOM PROVIDES A CASUAL SETTING TO REFRESH THE SPIRIT AND NOURISH THE BODY.
