An interesting place at Christmas with Lights and a Laser Show!

It's a blast and really adds to the area.I would eventually like to stay at the lodge but for now I am content with driving up to let my kids see a fun Christmas display!

Oglebay is a beautiful park. There is a variety of things to do, a nice zoo, a family fun lake, wonderful walking trails, a beautiful historic museum, delightful shops, great golf courses, skiing in the winter, and I think they still offer horseback riding. The accomdations at the lodge are upscale, while the cabins offer a chance to stay in... More

This place has everything. A magnificent park and gardens. Go back in time and visit the Manson Museum, Burton Center. The glass house is a must.

A beautiful place set in the hills. It was so exciting to see deer roaming the grounds freely. Many amenities, beautiful cottages to rent, rooms in the lodge, golfing, swimming, gift shops, restaurants. Awesome place although I did not stay there but was a short drive from my motel to Oglebay. The grounds were beautiful with many flowers & fountains.

The lodge and grounds is a nice addition to West Virginia. Lodge rooms are alittle dated and could use some updating for the price but usually you are just sleeping there. Grounds are beautiful and didn't get to enjoy it as much as we wanted to so definitely will go back another time.

We significantly raised our blood pressure by trying to use the shuttle in the zoo. On a busy Saturday, we waited OVER AN HOUR for it. A sign at the gazebo states to pick it up there, but no other information is available. We asked several--several staff members when it runs, and no one knew! So we waited. And waited.... More

Just returned from a week at one of the Deluxe Cottages, with my extended family--ranging from babies to grandparents. I have been going to Oglebay since I was a kid, and love being able to share this experience with my own children and grandchildren. There's something to do for everyone--golf, boating, fishing, hiking, zoo, playground, mini-golf, swimming, etc. in a... More
