Liked the food, but service was not great in the Glassworks Grille. I'd recommend going to the restaurant adjacent to the Grille for better service and broader menu.

What a relaxing place to visit. The hotel is a great mix of history and modern. I in a newer section and enjoyed a fireplace and 9 ft ceilings in the comfortable room. I was attending a conference and was well pleased with facilities and event meals

This park is astounding! Museum, old main home, gift shops, log cabin accomodations (very confortable) great restaurant, swimming pool, and especially interesting during winter light display. They have a historic Civil War battle with real muskets, mortars and cannons, a very nice zoo, and lakes with beautiful swans, geese and ducks. Don't miss this if you are anywhere near Wheeling...

Wheeling is really lucky to have a place like Oglebay. Having lived in a variety of small towns and cities and travelled quite a bit, you really realize what a gem it is. They have great attractions and events (Mansion, Museum, Schrader Environmental Center) as well as classes and events that just about everyone should find something they will enjoy!

Oglebay is one of The Ohio Valley's greatest treasures. Picnicking, golfing, swimming and seasonal cultural events galore. Oglebay has something for everyone. You must experience the Ihlenfeld Dining Room breakfast buffet !!!

We participated in a woodcarving show in The Pine Room. It is on a golf course with a swimming pool and very good little café with indoor and outdoor tables. Excellent facility and beautiful setting. We drove around to various spots in the park. There are deer in several areas. There is a camp ground, a zoo, a lake with... More

We planned on only going to the zoo in Oglebay Park but got there a little bit early so we drove up to the pond. My son was so excited when he saw the paddleboats. We also walked over to the playground and mini golf area. Both places are very clean and well kept. After visiting the zoo we did... More

My husband and I recently stayed the week with our 3 year old and 5 year old grandchildren in one of the two bedroom cabins. While I will admit I have stayed in nicer places for the money, (this is why a 4 star review instead of a 5) the variety and quality of family friendly activities was fantastic. We... More

Not many cities have such a beautiful facility and park as Wheeling has here. Many different activities to do and four beautiful golf courses to choose from.
