Luxurious Jekyll Island Hotel, Historic Coastal Georgia Resort
Gracious Jekyll Island Georgia resort accommodations set the stage for your landmark experience. The resort presents 157 rooms and suites in five historic settings. Just as Club members did a century ago, choose from the Clubhouse (Main Hotel), the Annex, Sans Souci, or one of the Cottages – Crane Cottage and Cherokee Cottage.

The Clubhouse, the centerpiece of the present day Historic District, was constructed in eighteen months and completed in time for the club’s first season in 1888. Designed by Charles Alexander of Chicago the structure was exactly what J.P. Morgan, Vanderbilt and their friends desired. The hotel is quintessentially American Queen Anne in architectural style. Alexander incorporated into its plan the turret, which dominates the roof line, encompassing verandas, bay windows, extended chimneys and overall asymmetrical design. Handsome interior details include Ionic columns in the dining room, twelve-and fifteen-foot ceilings, oak wainscoting and other handsomely detailed woodwork, as well as leaded art glass and distinctively detailed fireplaces. As the luxury standard for Jekyll Island accommodations, The Clubhouse expressed a life of elegant leisure.
The Annex was added to the resort grounds in 1901 to provide eight additional private apartments for Club members. This Annex was the first building to have indoor plumbing. Each club member was given a certain number of specially printed guest cards to invite friends to visit during the season. The “strangers,” as the Club members referred them, were permitted to visit for no longer than two weeks.
Sans Souci, meaning “without care,” was built in 1896. This six-unit apartment building is considered to be one of the first condominiums built in this country. The building now consists of 24 guest rooms and two private meeting rooms. It is perfect for board-retreat-style Jekyll Island meetings as well as family reunions. The floors, leaded art glass, stairway and skylight are original.
Crane Cottage, (View floor plan) built in 1917, in classic Italianate design, offers 13 guest resort rooms and suites, lush gardens, courtyard dining and intimate meeting spaces. The sunken Garden area, terrace level above the garden and the surrounding grounds offer a perfect venue for wedding ceremonies up to 350 people. Additionally, Crane has a fountain courtyard with arcaded loggia and seating for up to 120 people.
Cherokee, (View floor plan) a stately villa built in 1904, has ten guest rooms and unique meeting space within its elegant interiors. This cottage is perfect for small groups or reunions.
