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

Being the only game in town on top of Mount Greylock, I feel like I went through some set up entrapment. After seeing this featured in Yankee magazine and going to the website, you would think that a restaurant that requires reservations plus your meal order (prie-fix menu ranging from $28-$35/person) before you arrive would be top-notched and fully prepared....

We went to the top of the Mt. Greylock and decided to grab a quick lunch at the Bascom Lodge. What a mistake. We waited almost 1/2 hour to place our order then another 1 hour for them to serve us. People after us were served before us because we have a large party. The place was very disorganized.

We had heard you could have a local brew and watch the sunset on the deck in back of the newly re-opened Bascom Lodge. A few points of clarification: the deck is enclosed so it is warmer, but you watch the sunset from picnic tables through a wall of small windows. The beers are in bottles and cans and the... More
