Visit to glass house

We stopped by the glass house when we stayed at the Lodge. It is a beautiful retail store with a museum on glass making.

We shopped then went downstairs to the museum and glass blowing demonstration. We purchased some of Bob Allen's pieces after watching him create a really pretty pumpkin. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Liz.

Carriage House Glass has a wide variety of glassware and other gift ideas. They offer prices from the very lows to the highs so there is something for everyone. While at the Oglebay Resort or in the area, make a stop at Carriage House Glass to see what you can find.

Very beautiful displays. Would like to see something more intricately made then a glass paper weight...which I've seen previously. Pricing high and no personalized glass etching available.

Wow, if you like glass art & otherwise...they have it! Everything from serving pieces to pure glass art from WV and elsewhere. Also a very nice glass museum (with a fee to see).
