The Resort presents 157 rooms and suites in five historic settings. While there is a wonderful diversity in locations, sizes and appointments of accommodations, each reflects the Hotel’s devotion to the luxury, comfort and services that define the Jekyll Island Club Hotel’s landmark experiences for its guests.
From the Clubhouse (Main Hotel) and the Annex, to the adjacent Sans Souci, Crane Cottage and Cherokee, authentic history and genuine Southern hospitality await.
The Clubhouse is the center of Resort life and the Jekyll Island Historic District. It was designed by Charles Alexander of Chicago and was constructed in just eighteen months in time for the Jekyll Club’s inaugural 1888 season. The structure is quintessentially American Queen Anne in architectural style, including its iconic turret that dominates the roof line, verandas, bay windows, extended chimneys and asymmetrical design. Exquisite interior details include Ionic columns in the dining room, twelve- and fifteen-foot ceilings, oak wainscoting and other handsomely detailed woodwork, leaded art glass and ornately detailed fireplaces. From its original opening to today, The Clubhouse embodies the finest expressions of elegant leisure.
The Annex was added to the Clubhouse in 1901 to provide private apartments for members and their guests and was the first building to have indoor plumbing. Today, it offers rooms and suites, some with a sun porch.
Sans Souci, it’s name means “without care.” Built in 1896 to offer apartment-style accommodations for Club members, the structure, next to the main Hotel and facing the river, now offers 24 guest rooms and suites along with two private meeting/hospitality rooms. Its wood floors, leaded art glass, stairways and skylights are all original.
Crane Cottage, built in 1917 and located immediately adjacent to the main Hotel, Crane Cottage is the most expensive and elegant winter home ever built on Jekyll Island. Today, its classic Italianate design offers 13 guest rooms and suite joined by lush sunken garden, alfresco courtyard dining and intimate meeting space. (View floor plan)
Cherokee takes its name from the thick stands of Cherokee roses that originally surrounded this stately residence. The sense here, as was intended at its construction in 1904, is that of a private, river edge villa. Within its sumptuous interiors are 10 guest rooms and suite along with a unique meeting space. Cherokee is located next to Faith Chapel and near Crane Cottage. (View floor plan)
