At 3,491 feet, Mount Greylock is the highest point in Massachusetts and became the state’s first wilderness state park in 1898. The 12,500-acre reserve, which is a favorite for multi-season hiking and recreation, is no secret, but what many don’t know is that Bascom Lodge, which sits at the top, offers seasonal accommodations and world-class meals with a breathtaking view. Whether you drive to the top or need to rest after a long hike, the rustic 1930s stone lodge is a welcome sight. The lodging is basic but quite comfortable and the menu, masterminded by Manhattan-trained chef John Dudek, is locally sourced and changes daily depending on what’s in season.
