Keep in mind that this is NOT your typical hotel experience. The lodge is quite rustic and the accommodations are very simple. We stayed here for two nights this summer in one of the private family rooms. The baths are shared. The room was comfortable although a bit warm with no A/C. Built in the 1930's, the lodge feels as... More

We had a lovely stay after a day of hiking on the mountain, which is very very nice... There are shared showers and restrooms so make sure to bring flip flops for the shower. Only complaint was that the rooms and food are a bit overpriced.

We stayed in one of the single rooms- not too large, but nicely furnished. The spring water which was in the room was delicious and very welcome. The large shared bathroom was just steps away and I only had to wait briefly one time in two days. The living room room was inviting and we enjoyed reading there in the... More

First off my job is in the communications industry so if you are familiar with Mt Greylock you will see a large radio tower on site. Well we had a job that required us to be away from home for a few weeks and initially we checked into a local motel (that shall remain nameless) Needless to say after the... More

We like to stay at lodges and huts. While this place is not as isolated as an AMC hut, it has some nice features and is more comfortable in some ways. There are individual and bunk rooms available. We stayed in a bunk room as that was all that was available. It slept 8 or 10 in bunk beds but... More

Two friends and I stayed for 1 night in July while hiking through the area. We reserved three beds in the bunk room, but since the lodge was not full we had the room all to ourselves. The room was clean and spacious with a shared bath down the hall. We also had our dinner and breakfast at the lodge,... More

We stayed here while attending a Wedding. The staff here was the best and the food was excellent. The only reason that I didn't rate it higher is because of the shared bathroom, however it was not a problem for us.

Bascom Lodge is a great place to stay if you like to rough it a little but still sleep in a comfortable bed. The bathroom is in the hall and the shower is too so you need to like some sharing to enjoy this place. The views are spectacular on the top of Mt. Greylock and being there first thing... More

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
