My wife and I decided to make the trip up the mountain for dinner after hearing great things about the lodge and it's meals. A low hanging cloud met us in the parking lot as we made it to the summit. Upon entering the lodge a rustic feel with low amber lighting along with a large stone fireplace surrounded by... More

Great lodge keeper. He was very nice and helpful. Best is to stay during a weekday since it gets busy during the week ends. They have a restaurant at the lodge for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Dinner is by reservation only but definitively a must try if you stay there. They host small events through the summer, with drinks from 5pm to 7pm.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Bascom Lodge on a Saturday night in July 2016. It was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful views atop Mt. Greylock after hiking to the top via Cheshire Harbor Trial/Appalachian Trial. The staff was friendly and accommodating--letting us check in a few hours early. We stayed in the small, private...

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
