Have stayed in the main lodge and cabins. Both were enjoyable in there own way. The lodge is elegant while the cabins are first rate and WONDERFUL for groups. You could easily head to Oglebay Park and stay on the compound the entire time. A variety of food options, beautiful scenery, golf, spa services, events and the a Good Zoo... More

There is a lovely lodge - recently... More

This is our 24th year at Oglebay. We have had three generations for many years. This most recent visit we had a large cabin and two rooms at the lodge. The staff is phenomenal. The activities are plentiful for varied age groups. The breakfast buffet is unsurpassed. The best perk, however, is having a beautiful venue where we can enjoy... More

I thought it would be fun to take my kids to Oglebay to see their christmas lights. I was so wrong. This was an awful experience. It took HOURS yes HOURS to even get to the lights from the highway. So, if it took hours to drive 3 miles why didn't you turn around? The road was two lane and... More

So sorry to hear you were disappointed in your visit to Oglebay. The Winter Festival of Lights is one of America’s largest holiday light shows and because it is so popular it can become quite busy, especially on Saturday evenings. It is difficult to predict the traffic but we do apologize for your extended travel time. More

My wife and I were married by a judge in Wheeling and spent our honeymoon night at Oglebay, years ago. We have since returned many times. The park has fishing and mini-golf. It has wild life and a zoo. There is a train that you can ride through the zoo area, as well. The staff have always been pleasant, even... More

Have played over 160 different golf courses and never had a 5 hour round like we played today. The ranger came to see us twice and said there was nothing he could do to speed up play. The card said the ideal pace of play was 4:29. The ranger informed us that the group ahead of us was 9 minutes... More

We've been coming to Oglebay for the last 10 years and are always pleased. A couple comments - the indoor pool is in need of a renovation (visually and for safety reasons). We also took advantage of the Scrader enviromental center- great experience and the gentleman working there was super helpful with ideas! Loved the paddle boats, golfing, park (great... More
