If you're not from the area, I recommend Oglebay for a vacation if you're within 3-4 hours. It's a very rustic, fun, family trip. Plenty to do in 2-3 days. I wouldn't spend a whole week. Very nice for couples. There is a spa in Wilson lodge, a smaller zoo, nature walks, golf courses, walking trails, outdoor and indoor pool,... More

The resort is quite large. There were lots of families visiting, and lots for everyone to do. Indoor and outdoor pools, game room, tennis, hiking,... More

This property is awesome . Very clean and well kept. Play ground is very nice for young children to older. Small lake with paddle boats and ducks. Worth even a drive thru just to see the scenery .

This is a very large and very nicely maintained resort. A great hotel, shops, and restaurants are on the property. I recommend visiting during Christmas season, as they have a great drive-through lights display. Children and adults alike will love it.

Oglebay is beautiful at this time of year. We were there for a family weekend. Our children loved the paddle boating, playground, and miniature golf. The grounds are kept up beautifully, especially all the flowers everywhere. A wonderful day to spend a few hours before the wedding.

My group of friends have been doing an annual spa trip for the past 8 years. This year we chose the West Spa at Oglebay in Wheeling, WV. I must say the spa is at the top of our list. Jessica, the Assistant Manager was wonderful to work with. The day of our pampering she made sure everything was to... More
