Our historic Jekyll Island resort and club is located off the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida. Situated between St. Simons Island and Cumberland Island, Jekyll is a short drive from the town of Brunswick and boasts of a salt marsh characteristic of the southeastern seaboard and a beach with the Atlantic Ocean lapping its shores. At 5,700 acres and a 33% limit on business development, Jekyll is the smallest of Georgia's barrier islands, yet resplendent with moss draped live oaks, marshes and remote beaches with natural sand dunes and indigenous wildlife.
At the turn of the century, tycoons, politicians, and socialites flocked to Jekyll Island to revel in their own luxury and America's burgeoning wealth. Our historic Georgia Club was described in the February 1904 issue of Munsey's Magazine as "the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world." Its impressive members included such luminaries as J.P. Morgan, William Rockefeller, Vincent Astor, Joseph Pulitzer, William K. Vanderbilt, and other recognizable names on the roster were Macy, Goodyear, and Gould.
Between 1888 and 1928 these wealthy northern families built their winter homes, or "cottages" as they were called, designed to house entire families with staff. Hardly cottages, they exemplified Victorian tastes in architecture. Two of these have been restored and are part of the Jekyll Island Club's historic accommodations.
Stay in the Crane Cottage or one of the large hotel Suites, both of these historic buildings will be one of the most enjoyable experiences you will ever encounter.
Crane Cottage, in the style of Italian Renaissance, was built in 1917 for Richard Teller Crane, Jr. and his wife. It is the largest, most lavish of the cottages and has a landscaped formal sunken garden with fountains and upper terrace.
