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

While traveling for business, I enjoy visiting local parks and walking for exercise. There is a nice pond within the park and a walking path around the pond. Deer are abundant and fishing, paddle boating, and other activities are available at the pond.

Took my niece and nephew for a visit to the zoo, not the same as when I was a child at all. Many animals looked in bad shape, many exhibits closed, and poor conditions in other areas. Many areas just look neglected. Sad to see the zoo this way, an influx of some tlc and $ could make this zoo... More

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

My husband and I went for a golf getaway. We booked a suite which was quite large and it had a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the beautiful rolling hills. Staff is friendly and helpful. 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.
