THE LODGE

     A RUSTIC ARTS AND CRAFTS MOUNTAIN LODGE BUILT BY VOLUNTEERS FROM THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS AT THE HEIGHT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION. BUILT ON THE SUMMIT OF THE STATE'S HIGHEST MOUNTAIN, THE LODGE WAS NAMED IN HONOR OF THE RESERVATION'S FIRST COMMISSIONER, JOHN BASCOM; AN ARDENT PROPONENT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A LODGE BEFITTING THE GRANDEUR OF THE MOUNTAIN. DESIGNED IN AN ARCHITECTURAL STYLE THAT WOULD LATER BECOME AN INSPIRATION FOR MANY OF AMERICA'S NATIONAL PARK BUILDINGS, THE LODGE IS 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.

     THE CENTERPIECE OF A 12,500 ACRE WILDERNESS PARK, THE LODGE CELEBRATES IT'S 85TH SEASON OF OPERATION IN 2022.

     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 MUSIC 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.
