We go to Oglebay several times a year as we live nearby. It's beautiful and well taken care of. We've been taking our son to the Trick or Treat event for the last 3 years. They have treat stations throughout the Good Zoo and a haunted train ride-very nice for everyone. The Good Zoo is small enough for little ones... More

My family has been going there for years, good swimming, nice facilities and good golf facilities. The rental prices are a little pricey but otherwise we love the place.

Been coming to the lodge for years. Stayed there many times. It is quaint and fun. Beautiful scenery. Food in Ihlenfeld dining room is very good. Great for family or couples especially the rooms in the newer section.

I visit on every trip to Wheeling. Many things to do (golf, zoo, swimming, museum, shops, etc.) Golfing in these hills should be quite an experience for those used to flat land courses.

Oglebay Park is a scenic location. The activities focus mainly on golf or skiing. For families with children, there is a small zoo. Not much else. The shops are standard except for the GlassWorks Shop and Museum. These two are the most exciting and interesting . Very unique and very informative. Lots of remodeling goimg on during our stay around... More

It is wonderful to have a first class resort in your own back yard. There is so much to see and do. The new trail system is ideal for walking with scenic views and the challenge of hills and dales. There's tennis, exceptional golf, great cabins for family gatherings, seasonal activities, dining, the Mansion Museum, and on and on. We... More

We had a great time here while I was home visiting. The playground is well-maintained, and the boats were fun to ride. We didn't golf due to the kids loving the playground so much, and we didn't swim due to it being a little chilly. I love Oglebay so much. Thanks for all the memories!

We stayed at Oglebay park for a family reunion. We shared a cabin overlooking the Speidel Golf course, truly amazing! This 1600 acre park is nothing like I have ever seen before! Beauty abounds from the lake to the outdoor pool and beyond. There is a zoo, nature center, glass museum, and outdoor amphitheater where concerts are frequently held. They... More
