The lodge itself was very nice but the staff left a lot to be desired. Paid for the room upon check in but for some reason after dinner we were charged us for not only the meal but for the room again. After several credits and debits to our account we are still trying to get it fixed. There were... More

We spent an overnight atop Mt. Greylock, at the Bascom Lodge. I wasn't expecting 5 star accommodations, and went with the right frame of mind. The small room was basic: a double bed, dresser, mirror, nice view from the window, and a chair. Where do we put our duffle bags? One fit on the chair, the other on the highboy... More

This was a very nice lodge on top of Mt. Greylock, where my husband wanted to hike on the AT. Rooms are small, but comfortable and the dinner was fantastic! Loved the views from the lodge during a thunderstorm that night and loved waking to clear skies. Excellent service and comfortable living area for reading or relaxing.

We went for lunch, it was so pretty up there. We didn't know there was going to be a drum circle, that we could have done without. I had a hummus, eggplant, roasted red pepper, alvacado, tomato and onion sandwich..it was good.. The eggplant was delicious, the only part that I didn't love was the hummus, it had chunks in... More

Last night my company had their staff dinner from (you know where)! The ONLY positive was the taste of the food, and that was in NO WAY in relation to the portion size, as each guest was still hungry afterwards. It all started when we were at at a table, ordered drinks, and then TOLD TO MOVE TO ANOTHER TABLE... More

I was at the event that night. The original agreement was to give the party exclusive use of the dining room from 5-6pm at no charge. And to provide a discounted price for dinner. Which we did. We did not change their reservation twice that day. The agreement was always for 5-6pm. The company members were late (full party showed... More

First thing to know about Bascom Lodge is what it was designed to be: a hiking lodge. In other words, a place where hikers can gather at the end of the day to relax and refresh. That does not mean that non-hikers won't enjoy the place, but that they should not expect Bascom Lodge to be something it isn't. If... More

You just have to warm to a place when you check in at 5pm to be told by a guy with dreadlocks to his waist that the towels are still in the laundry. But this lodge is nothing if not laid back, and if you arrive with the cares of the world they will soon be melted away with a... More

This historic wood and stone lodge built by the Civilian Conservation Corp is perfectly situated among fields of wildflowers and stands of fir trees at the summit of Mount Greylock, the highest mountain in Massachusetts. The Appalachian Trail runs beside the lodge at mile 1583 from Springer Mt. GA and mile 602 from Katahdin ME. Even though we've hiked 2/3... More

The remodeled rooms are beautifully furnished.We had the "suite" which included Robert Morris wallpaper, rich woods, and a remodeled bathroom too. This place is a mix of great things and falling-apart bits. The managers have taken on the task of undoing generations of neglect and should be given some slack and encouragement where they have more to do - as... More

Bascom lodge was built in the 30s atop the highest peak in Massachusetts - Mount Greylock. We stayed overnight in a family lodge. There are pros to staying here - it is a historic building built in the Arts and Crafts Style, it has a lot of history and it is on top of the peak so you can easily... More
