This is a great resort/ conference center located in Wheeling West Virginia. Friendly deer are everywhere and there are activities from skiing to swimming to golfing. A beautiful spa is located on the premises as well as nicely appointed rooms along with a huge selection of cottages located in the wooded areas that can handle large and small groups- all... More

My husband and I plus a friend needed to book rooms for 8 days! I grew up around Wheeling so I know how beautiful the setting is and I always admired the Lodge and its perch on top of the "mountain". We got there for the last few days of the Christmas decorations...beautiful.. We had a lovely stay...a cozy room... More

I've been coming here for three years and each year it gets better. It is not modern. It is USA accommodation at its height - big rooms, carpets, solid wood furniture, wide hallways, big stairs. interesting decore from the 30 and 40's sort of art nouveau , fire places, books, Dean Martin and co on loop and comfortable chairs. It's... More

Our family traveled from Cleveland (3-hour drive) to stay overnight on the Sunday after Christmas.Incredibly expensive suite (over $500) and a so-so room! Lunch at the Grill and the evening buffet dinner just adequate and many items were extra at dinner. They were out of our favorite wine and the wait staff was inattentive and abrupt. I also find being... More

The light show features 80 larger-than-life displays with a million lights over 300 acres on a six-mile drive. We take advantage of our topography and add lights to our hillsides, trees and historic buildings, making the Winter Festival of Lights unique.... More

My review is long but trustworthy. I give a rating of average because the Traditional 4 room 2 bath cottage was, after all, a cottage; its purpose is to house mass numbers of people, with our party having nine people. The Traditional cottages are NOT cookie-cutter buildings; every individual cottage is unique. I have stayed in two traditional cottages (sorry,... More

We've known about the Oglebay Resort for years but had never done more than a drive by during the Christmas season until January, 2015. We had a very enjoyable one night stay and found the facility to be much better than we anticipated and will very likely return for a lengthier stay.

My husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary at Oglebay in December. We have stayed here in the past and wanted to come back for the Festival of Lights. The entire lodge was decorated beautifully for Christmas and I could have spent hours just walking around taking in the decorations. We stayed in the lodge in a Deluxe Fireplace... More

The lodge is perfect; with the real wood paneled walls, beautifully decorated hallways & common areas, making everyone feel warm & friendly. The free entertainment was well above average and kept the crowd amused and involved the entire evening! The bus tour through the Christmas Time Light Show was great for the large group we invited to our stay at... More

We stayed two nights-Sunday and Monday nights, December 28 and 29, 2014. While there are many positive things to say about Wilson Lodge, the beautiful setting and the PAVED walking paths, there is a serious problem with the restaurant venues. I was given the impression that we would not have to leave the property for meals. Since we are early... More

Within the beautiful setting of Oglebay Park are "cabins" for rent that accommodate small to large groups of people. My family is here in three different levels of cabins. Those that are privately owned are quite lovely and up to date for today's travelers. The others should only be considered with full awareness of the bare bones furnishings and amenities.... More
