Over 100 years ago, a tradition of hospitality was born at the summer estate of Earl W. Oglebay in Wheeling, West Virginia. Today, the picturesque beauty of Oglebay’s property has expanded to 2,000 acres of year-round recreational activities, outstanding overnight accommodations and flexible space for meetings and events.

Hang around on the Aerial Challenge Course, splash in the Fountains of Fun Splash Zone, sample farm-to-table cuisine at the Garden Bistro, or relax in one of our spacious guest rooms in Wilson Lodge. From the outdoor enthusiast to the avid golfer, from the blushing bride to the empty nester, Oglebay truly offers something for everyone.

If golf is your game, take a swing on one of four golf courses, including the illustrious Speidel Golf Club which features the Robert Trent Jones Sr. Course and the ever-challenging Arnold Palmer Course. If food is your passion, experience our diverse dining venues which offer artful cuisine to please the palate. Hit the mountain biking trails, saddle up for a horseback ride, go fishing at Schenk Lake, discover endangered species at Oglebay’s 30-arce Good Zoo, or take a run down the ski and snowboard trails. Offering endless year-round entertainment, Oglebay is always in season.

Even the most active guests need time to unwind. At Oglebay, guests can bask in the tranquility of the West Spa. Offering a full menu of spa services, including massage treatments, nail services, facials and more, the West Spa is the perfect complement to every Oglebay experience.

For the history buff, Oglebay offers guided tours of the Oglebay Mansion and Bissonnette Gardens, which have been restored to resemble the beloved flower beds of Earl Oglebay’s wife, Sallie Oglebay, dating back to her residence in the early 1900s. Today, garden visitors can enjoy a three-season kaleidoscope of color as they follow the meandering red brick walkways past sweeping beds of vibrant blooms and hanging baskets.

From November to January, Oglebay is transformed into a winter wonderland as guests travel from near and far to experience the time-honored tradition of the Festival of Lights, which has delighted hundreds of thousands of guests for more than 30 years. Deemed one of the 10 Best Christmas Light Displays in the United States by AOL Travel, the festival features 90+ larger-than-life exhibits spanning more than 300 acres.

For generations, families, groups, and organizations have delighted in the tradition and spirit that make Oglebay unique. Learn more at oglebay.com and follow us on Facebook.
