Bascom Lodge is a rustic arts and crafts mountain lodge built by the civilian conservation corps in the 1930’s. Constructed of local stone and old growth red spruce timbers, the lodge was designed in an architectural style that would later become the blueprint for america’s national parks. Nestled atop the summit of mt. Greylock, the state’s highest mountain, the lodge is the centerpiece of a 12,000 acre wilderness park, the first land preservative established by the state and the flagship property of the department of conservation and recreation. With over 70 miles of woodland trails, including an 11.5 mile section of the appalachian trail that passes within a few feet of the lodge’s front door, guests have access to diverse outdoor experiences, from a strenuous climb up the mountain’s eastern face to a walk through a sprawling, cliff-top low-bush blueberry patch.
