“LOVE this place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We come here once a year for the antiques show and look forward to it all year; this year was no exception! The show is run by a wonderful group of women supporting the Oglebay mansion museum committee. Here is the website if you want information on the show itself : http://www.oglebay-resort.com/antique.htm. Now on to Oglebay......The property is exquisite with every amenity you could possibly want - golf, tennis, swimming, a lovely spa, ice skating, hiking, trail rides, shopping, museums, Segway tours, boating.....you name it! Breakfast in the Ihlenfeld dining room is amazing - chef cooked omelets or waffles, eggs, meats, fruit, oatmeal bar, pure YUM!!! Did I say that we look forward to this all year long???? This is the place to stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in a lovely room with a fireplace this visit, however it was quite a walk to the dining ro...

Attending a package weekend for an Polka weekend was a very enjoyable time. On arrival the the Wilson Lodge staff were very friendly, courteous and promptly checking us in. The lodge is quite large and I would recommend anyone with special needs to advise Oglebay when making reservations. Reading the history of Oglebay before going the Resort was more than expectations. The lodge and accommodations were clean and well maintained and there was some maintenance in progress that did not interfere with guests. Food was excellent, waiters were friendly, prompt and efficient. During a hike we encountered at a trail junction an employee named Ken not on duty hiking who stopped and asked us if we we had any questions regarding our hike. We were undecided which trail to take to view a small falls. Though he was going in a different direction he changed his course and joined us to show the way and explained the history of Oglebay. We reached our destination, He graciously took pictures of us. We thanked him and he was off to his original destination. His conduct was an example our experience through out our weekend stay. We look forward to future visits. Barry & Dee

16 person cottage was bigger than we were expecting, the team loved it for our spring break trip. Tennis direct, Jeremy, was very helpful with local advice. The team enjoyed the lessons, thought he was one of best instructors they have worked with.

My wife and I were in desperate need of a weekend getaway together. I had spent a weekend at the Wilson Lodge previously on a golf trip with friends and thought my wife would enjoy the experience. The lodge has a luxurious spa and great pool and fitness center. We enjoyed the Dinning room and the Lounge very much. The staff was very pleasant and the atmosphere was excellent. The upkeep of this resort is exceptional, especially for such a large establishment.
Our package came with free breakfast buffet and it certainly was more than what most of us are used to as a free "breakfast". A chef to prepare made to order omelets and waffles, a spread of everything from healthy breakfast to the delicious assortment of breakfast meats and specialty dishes.
The resort has many beautiful golf courses and other great mountain side scenic opportunities.
The cost is a little more than we usually pay for a normal hotel room but the atmosphere and the treatment we received more than made up the difference.
Overall it was a great weekend which helped us both to relax and enjoy each others company.

Room Tip: We paid the extra money for a larger room and it was worth it. Next time I would book a room with a...

Used the Bed & Breakfast package to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in forever. We had such a great time. The grounds and Wilson Lodge are fantastic. The entire area was still brown from winter, but I know it would be beautiful once it starts turning green and blooming. The food was fantastic and I can't say enough about the staff, always helpful and polite. Seeing deer is always a special treat. I can't wait to return with my husband to play golf.

Room Tip: We had a balcony on the west side, so nice to sit there in the afternoon when it was still a little...

Stayed at a cottage for 3 nights as family came & went for a mini-reunion of sorts. Surprised at how clean everything was when we arrived. Excellent value--a 4 bedroom/2 bath cottage is about the same price as a single room in the Lodge this time of year. We like rustic, and this is it! Wood panels, big fireplace (complete with a full box of firewood upon arrival), deer, and more deer. Did all our own cooking for meals--huge grocery store at the bottom of the hill nearby. Staff was very nice at check in/out. Don't be surprised to hear raccoons and see a spider or two. Kitchen is dated, but has everything you need. Used the game room, indoor pool, sauna, and hot tub in the lodge--all clean and warm. Our kids said this cottage was the best part of Spring Break. Will return next time meeting up with family.

Room Tip: Cottages in "A" area nicely spaced out so just enough privacy.

Always a wonderful place to stay. Every season has it's beauty, even now when we are getting over winter - just seeing the deer laying around the grounds and standing on the courses, such a beautiful sight.Staying in the cottages is so enjoyable and all the facilities of the lodge are wonderful too. Always love to visit all the resort shops, merchandise is beautiful and fairly priced for what it is. Always so sad to have to leave!!

Room Tip: If you can use a cottage, they are so enjoyable. We have stayed in all the different rooms over all...
