If you want small intimate tables, go to dinner in NYC. If you want great food in an oustanding setting, try Bascom Lodge. I have stayed there twice and had dinner there twice. The first time I receivced a telephone call from the staff earlier in day saying the menu selection had changed to pork chops. OK. I didn't know... More

I was sorry to see some not so kind reviews here. This special inn is tucked away on the highest mountain in Massachusetts. Get it? Away from it all. It almost reminds me of a remote island I go to in winter. There are no services next door like one would find in the city or in the towns of... More

We trekked the eight miles up the hill to this beautiful location and had dinner reservations at the lodge. No other way to say it...just terrible all the way around. They only have one seating at 7pm and a limited menu. The menu is published on their site prior to the day you reserve, so you can see if it... More

Rustic yet modern in every way. Restrooms were clean. We were allowed to use the picnic tables inside the buildings porch area for our lunch we had brought with us. Most of the time these types of "out of the way" places have high prices for terrible food. Even though we did not buy any food the prices were very... More

After hiking up the mountain, we were quite hungry, so almost anything would have been good. But I had a good burger at a reasonable price and my wife liked her grilled sandwich. The lodge is beautiful and the views are outstanding. Nice hike as well. I wouldn't mind going back for an overnight stay at the lodge.

We stayed overnight at the lodge and had dinner there as well. The lodge is an attractive building build by the CCC. It offers very basic rooms with shared toilets and showers down the hall. It was also pretty noisy if anyone even walked down the hall. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed in the rooms. They are... More

As a native, I only stayed in the lodge overnight once. It was fun, rustic and just a cozy experience. Family style breakfast, laid back atmosphere. Lovely great room w/ fireplace for relaxing, reading or whatever you like.

Last October we visited Mt. Greylock and Bascom Lodge for a nature presentation and dinner. At times there are special programs like the one we saw offered before dinner. You can enjoy the presentation without dinner if you wish. The night we were there, the naturalist took us on a walk around the Mt Greylock Monument showing us plant and... More

My friends and I decided to hike to the summit of Mount Greylock in Adams, MA late this fall. After a 4+ hour hike to the summit we were famished and decided to have lunch at the Bascom Lodge (the last day they were open for the season) where we were more than pleasantly surprised by the fantastic meal we...

We went to the Bascom Lodge for their dinner and had to make reservations. We made them over a month prior. They have a set menu that changes daily. We went online for the menu several times and saw it change. It even changed when we got there. They are slow..taking over two hours to serve a set menu. The... More
