Jekyll Island Club Hotel

Jekyll Island, Georgia

The hotel

Once described as ‘the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world’, the Club on Jekyll Island used to only welcome America’s wealthiest families and famous socialites, from the Rockefellers to the Vanderbilts. Today, this National Historic Landmark has been turned into the equally grand Jekyll Island Club Hotel, where you get a taste of its Victorian heyday and the highlife, with historic tours, croquet on the lawn, dinner in the Grand Dining Room, and strolls along the beach or in the oak forests where Victorian high society would have taken their constitutionals. It’s not all about the past though, you can enjoy modern pleasures like swimming near the river’s edge, and indulging in anything from high-end dishes to frozen drinks and fast food in the 6 bars and restaurants.

My husband and I picked Jekyll to celebrate our babymoon after many recommendations and it was the perfect getaway. With the help of Kayleigh, we picked a room at Crane Cottage in one of the suites with a balcony that faced the water. Even during a popular weekend such as Labor Day, the property felt very secluded and quiet. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. We didn't have to leave the resort the entire time we were there as there 3 restaurants on property along with full food and beverage service at the pool. Ashley at the Pool House made us feel like family and served us food and drinks both days we stayed. The resort also has an activity center where you can rent bikes to to tour around the island which seems to be a popular form of transportation. If you do not want to bike there is also a local electric rental car company offsite called Red Bug that will deliver to the resort. The grounds of the property are beautifully maintained and there are many wild deer grazing in the grass in the mornings and evenings to watch. We will definitely be making a trip back once the baby is born to relax for another weekend. Read less

My fiancé and I stayed with our friends at Crane Cottage of the Resort. Our experience was fabulous from the gorgeous cottage rooms to the service provided during our stay. I was blown away with how beautifully preserved all of the buildings and grounds were & the effort put into making the experience there one of a kind. Kayleigh provided us with background knowledge of the resort, a wonderful welcome and help with all of our reservation needs. Mike was great as well! We will definitely be returning soon! This resort/island is a hidden gem. Read less
