Explore the Island with a Scavenger Hunt!


When traveling with kids, your day is often within the theme of “go, go, go!” Sometimes you can run out of attractions or activities to keep the kiddos busy and occupied, or maybe they have gotten bored with the usual playing on the beach. With Jekyll Island being a gorgeous outdoor playground filled with a historic background and a ton of sights to see, it’s the perfect location for a fun-filled scavenger hunt!

Make it island-wide, or pinpointed in the historic district for an educational twist. Have them take pictures as they hunt, or create a fill in the blank worksheet. Let them run around by foot, or rent bicycles for added fun. Time the scavenger hunt or open it up for the entire time of the trip. The possibilities are endless!

Scavenger hunts are great for family reunions, extended family getaways, activities for the children at a wedding or for a group of friends traveling together who are in search of a fun activity that is outside of the box! You can create the scavenger hunt yourself with all of the information available on our website and other online outlets, or you can contact your Sales Manager for your event and they can easily help you out with questions, maps and more!

Here’s a sample of a previous scavenger hunt created for a client!

  • For whom was the indoor tennis center named?
  • What was the original use of the building that now houses the Sweet Shop?
  • Which “cottage” is due north of the Clubhouse?
  • Which Cottage (built in 1893) is yet to be restored?

Don’t let the kids get bored this summer! Create a scavenger hunt and it is sure to be something they will remember forever!

AAA Four Diamond Restaurant: The Grand Dining Room!


Today, we at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel are very excited to have our Grand Dining Room awarded the AAA Four Diamond Award.

The AAA Four Diamond Award is awarded to only 2.3% of nearly 30,000 restaurants that are approved by AAA, and in order for a restaurant to receive a four diamond rating, it must meet certain requirements. For establishments designated as AAA Approved, inspectors give a rating based on extensiveness of services, facilities and amenities that are typical of each individual rating level.

A Four Diamond Award is classified to restaurants with a distinctive fine-dining atmosphere who often have a highly creative executive chef, imaginative presentations and market-fresh ingredients on the menu. Also taken into account are if wine stewards are available, if there is an upscale ambiance and the general price range of the restaurant, with a four diamond being on the affluent side.

What an honor!


While everything about this award and rating is an honor, what truly puts the cherry on top of our excitement is that we are the only four diamond rated restaurant in the Southeast of Georgia, with only 13 four diamond restaurants making the list in Georgia. Of those 13, 11 are located in Atlanta with one in Greensboro, and of course, the final one located now in Jekyll Island!

We were presented the award by AAA Field Managers Jamie Thompson and Garrett Townsend, both of whom expressed how special the four diamond rating is because restaurants who hold the title operate on a significant level of consistency. Townsend also reported that 92% of AAA members will only choose either four or five diamond properties and restaurants, because they know the manner of which these awards are given is one to be trusted.


We couldn’t have achieved this huge accomplishment without all of the hard work, continuous efforts and high level of work ethic of all of our kitchen and Grand Dining Room staff. They deserve one big round of applause!

While this is our first AAA four diamond, we are already thinking about our second. Lynn Lee, Assistant Director of Food and Beverage, and Executive Chef Dale Ford both expressed how they plan to continue to raise the bar in our Grand Dining Room in hopes of not only receiving the four diamond rating each year, but with a long-term goal of reaching a five diamond status.

A very special thank you to all who helped the Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel receive this honor, and to Jamie and Garrett from AAA who personally delivered our award.

A Magical Evening Featuring Darcie Kent Vineyards


Last night at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel was filled with unique and delicious wines, extraordinary cuisine and great company. Even the rain couldn’t dull the evening!

Our second wine dinner featured, what is now I’m sure a guaranteed favorite vineyard among those who attended, Darcie Kent Vineyards. Located in Livermore Valley in the sunshine state, Darcie Kent Vineyards was established in 1996 by Darcie Kent herself who has wine running through her veins. Kent is a 4th generation winemaker  who was inspired by her Great-Grandfather, creator of the once successful Alpine Winery, and her wines are nothing short of what you would expect.

So, it’s safe to say the wine dinner was already off to a great start with simply just the vineyard selection!

The evening was set in the historic Morgan Center and was one to look forward too with six handcrafted courses being served. Each course was imagined, created and prepared by a different Jekyll Island Club Hotel chef, allowing the perfect amount of cuisine variety to be served.

With each new course served, a new Darcie Kent Vineyard wine was paired. The Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, West Pinnacles, Chardonnay, Mayo, Pinot Noir, Monterey, Cabernet Sauvignon, Madden Ranch, and the Grunner Veltliner, Rava Black Jack Vineyard all made an appearance at the farm tables and complimented each courses completely. What also makes these wines so unique besides the amazing vines they come from and all the different ingredients used, is the label. Not only is Kent a winemaker, but she is also a very talented artist and she actually uses her personal paintings of the beautiful natural setting around her on the Darcie Kent Vineyards wine labels. So not only is the wine exceptional, but it’s also uniquely beautiful.

Sipping on wines and indulging in fine cuisine always makes for a great night, but also getting to listen to Darcie and her top sales manager Harrison explain each wine with such depth and tell stories about the vineyard was the cherry on top to a fabulous wine dinner!

Yay, You’re Engaged!…Now What?


Once a soon-to-be bride gets engaged, there’s always the moment after where they think “now what?” Wedding planning can appear stressful because unfortunately, the engagement ring doesn’t come with a set of instructions, but that’s no reason to spin into a state of chaos! While everyone’s styles and preferences are different, we’ve come up with a 5-step guide for all of you blushing bride’s out there that most of our past brides have typically follow here at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.

1. Set a budget

For obvious reasons, setting a budget is at the top of the list. While you don’t have to immediately sit down and crunch numbers right after you say “YES”, you should create a general budget before beginning the planning process so you don’t end up overwhelmed down the road. Some important questions to ask here are: “Are you paying for the wedding?”, “Are your parents or grandparents planning on contributing?”, “How much are they willing to help?”, “Are you comfortable with the budget amount?”

2. Create a Guest List Guideline

After setting the purse guidelines, you will then move on to the guest list. Start by sitting down with your fiancé and creating your personal guest list of all the close friends you would like to invite, and asking your parents to create a list of the family and family-friends who they would like to invite (especially if they are footing the bill!). Now don’t freak out, this first total is probably going to be a big one, it’s necessary though so you can then take a step back and ask yourself “Should I really invite my old college roommate who I haven’t talked to in a few years?”. From there, you will chisel away at the guest list until you arrive at a number you are comfortable with, and then you are ready to begin the fun stuff!

3. Go Venue Shopping

Now that you have a good estimate on your guest list, you will then move on to venue shopping. It’s important to have a good grasp on your guest head count because this will be vital to choosing your venue to ensure everyone has a seat! Here at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, we have several venue settings that range in size and are all perfect for ceremonies and receptions. Whether it’s an elegant garden setting, a sun-set background, sand between your toes, a jaw-dropping entrance or a charming chapel ceremony, we have it all!

Our largest setting for up to 300 people is the Morgan Center, featuring an outdoor terrace, deluxe lawn, a mezzanine and a large main floor complete with skylights and romantically draped fabric. The Morgan Center Lawn is perfect for a blissful outdoor ceremony as the trellises and surrounding greenery creates an intimate feel, or inside the main hall is a grand staircase that will be aglow with lights for a dramatic entrance as the bride can walk down the stairs to the aisle. What is truly wonderful about the Morgan Center is that it can house your entire wedding event from the ceremony to the reception.

Morgan Wedding 6-2

Following the Morgan Center in size is Crane Cottage, a grand, Italian Renaissance-style cottage featuring a formal Sunken Garden with fountains and an upper terrace, a fountained Courtyard with an arcaded loggia, a Reflecting Pool Lawn, an elegant Living Room complete with fireplaces and a cozy library. Crane’s garden is the perfect setting with its lush trellises for wedding ceremonies up to 250 people, followed by the Reception of up to 130 guests in the Courtyard underneath the loggia. Worried your group won’t fit in the Courtyard? With the add-on of a tent outside the Courtyard, an additional 170 guests can be accommodated.

Post & Posed098

Our third and final setting that offers the ability to have all wedding events in one location is the Riverfront Lawn. With some of the best sunset and river views, along with a beautiful canopy of ancient oaks providing a sensational open-air setting, the Riverfront Lawn is a storybook location to fill all of your wildest dreams. Have a ceremony underneath the oak tree with your reception follow either out on the lawn as well or indoors, where the Club Ballroom would be a perfect fit!


If you are searching for a setting that offers a mix between indoor and outdoor setting with added privacy and true southern touches, then Cherokee is the setting for you! Constructed in 1904, the stand-alone cottage encompasses a southern-style front Veranda, three arched, double front doors that welcome guests into a light, spacious great room that is great for an indoor/outdoor reception, and its ten accommodations express a life of elegant leisure. With the ability to hold events up to 50 people, Cherokee is the perfect setting if a more intimate vibe is what you seek.


Here at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, not only can you have riverside ceremonies, but you can also say I-do with a sea breeze in your veil! The Hotel’s Beach Pavilion, located along Jekyll Island’s pristine beaches, is a spacious open-air structure accommodating up to 70 guests–the perfect seaside setting for outdoor wedding events or rehearsal dinners. Sandy toes and salty kisses are the perfect duo for a blissful ceremony!

C & T-Details & Portraits174-2

Boasting historic charisma and elegance, the Club Ballroom is conveniently connected to the Clubhouse and just a few steps away from ceremony locations, making it the perfect setting for your desire to have your ceremony and reception in two different locations. Being able to accommodate up to 100 people for a reception filled with food, libations and dancing, guests will be able to mingle inside and out as the four sets of double doors open onto the Veranda, overlooking the moonlight sky and the Annex Courtyard.


Another great option for having an indoor reception, or even intimate ceremonies as well, is our historical Hall of Mirrors. Smaller, more intimate weddings are sensational in any of the private banquet rooms that flank the Hotel’s historic Hall of Mirrors: The Pulitzer, Federal Reserve, Aldrich, and Alexander rooms. All have 12-foot ceilings, natural light and a charming fireplace, and can accommodate up to 15-30 guests each. What makes the Hall of Mirrors so special, besides all of the rich historic background, is that they can easily be combined for larger groups up to 100.


A great nod towards a more traditional ceremony, Faith Chapel is centrally located in the historic district just next to Cherokee and Crane Cottage. With decorative elements derived from the Gothic style, and a beautiful signed stained glass window of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Faith Chapel is a great ceremony venue setting for up to 100 guests. The chapel is managed by the Historic Museum and makes the perfect background for an intimate chapel ceremony.


4. Set the Date

Once you have found your dream wedding venue, it’s time to pick a date! We suggest picking the venue before the date because if you only have one specific date when looking at different settings, you will be limiting yourself! The first few months out of the year is the biggest wedding booking season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still plan a 2015 wedding! We still have availability at select settings all throughout the year, and there are even still a few discount wedding weekends up for grabs! Finding a date that works not only for you and your fiancé, but also for the majority of those important guests you would like to attend, will help save some stress later so things like work, school and travel conflicts don’t arise.

“Love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds” – Shakespeare


With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, love is definitely in the air! This year, there is also the added bonus that Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday which creates the perfect opportunity to really plan something unique and special!

Like the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, Valentine’s Day has a very historic background. While the exact details of how Valentine’s Day came about, it is assumed that this day filled with love was inspired by a church martyr, Saint Valentine, who officiated Christian marriages in secret after Emperor Claudis II banned marriages amongst young people, believing that wifeless soldiers fought harder in war than those married. Valentine so strongly believed in the God-given right of marriage, and it was later because of this belief and his secret officiant actions that he lost his life to his fight for “love for love”.

At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I officially declared February 14th to be St. Valentine’s Day, and now here we are!

Continuing on with the historic sentiment of “love for love,” what better way to honor this exceptional day than with an elopement or renewal of vows ceremony? While some might call Valentine’s Day cliché, we beg to differ. A national day that was created to celebrate the historic actions of a martyr who believed in love, without whom we have no idea where the act of marriage would now be, is not cliché in any shape or form, but instead a great testament to the marriage you hope to have for the years to come.

So this year, let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day in historic proportions and honor Saint Valentine with the main thing he fought for, marriage.

A ceremony underneath the Spanish moss dripped live oaks, amongst the salty air and sandy ground or along the river as the sun slowly melts away will be nothing less than a romantic moment that you and your valentine will remember forever.

Call Cricket Elrod in our Sales and Catering Department today at 912-635-5129 and create your best Valentine’s Day yet!

100th Anniversary of the First Transcontinental Telephone Call

Transcontinental Phone Call

Tomorrow, January 25th, marks the 100th anniversary of the very first transcontinental telephone call, and the Jekyll Island Club Hotel had its own part of this historic event.

The famous four-way call that transpired around 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on January 25, 1915, was hailed as a technological triumph of monumental proportions, as instantaneous, coast-to-coast conversations became possible for the first time. On the line was U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, in Washington D.C.; scientist and telephone inventor Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, in New York; and Bell’s eminent assistant, Thomas A. Watson, in San Francisco.

As the greeting, “Hello, Jekyll Island,” reverberated across the phone lines, it was answered from Georgia by American Telephone and Telegraph Company President Theodore Newton Vail, who took part in the pioneering chat as he sat in one of the parlors of the legendary Jekyll Island Club.  The historic call had been intentionally planned to inaugurate the San Francisco World’s Fair, but Vail was stuck at the Jekyll Island Club recuperating from a leg injury.

Here is just a tidbit of the conversation that took place that afternoon…

President Wilson: “Hello, Mr. Vail.”
Vail: “Who is this?”
President Wilson: “This is the President, I am glad to hear your voice. I have just been speaking across the continent this afternoon.”
Vail: “Oh, yes.”
President Wilson: “Before I give up the telephone, I wanted to extend my congratulations to you on the consummation of this remarkable work.”

And the rest is history!

Join in the historic festivities as the Jekyll Island Museum celebrates this historic American event that also became another landmark chapter in Jekyll Island’s storied past. The museum will commemorate the centennial of a momentous scientific achievement that literally echoed from sea to shining sea with a celebration in the Morgan Center featuring a short presentation, a complimentary champagne toast, and the unveiling of a commemorative keepsake.  Coffee and cake also will be served, and with this event being open to the public for free admission, there’s no reason not to bring everyone! The fun begin at 4:00 p.m. – the same hour as the precedent-setting transcontinental telephone call a century earlier.

Want to learn more?  The Jekyll Island Museum recently launched an online exhibit telling the story of the first transcontinental telephone call.  The presentation can be viewed at www.jekyllisland.com.

Cherokee, a Memorable Southern Setting


At the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, there are several fabulous wedding settings to choose from. If you love the quaintness of Crane Cottage, but maybe have a smaller guest list, then Cherokee is the PERFECT option for you!

Cherokee Cottage, as beautiful as the wild rose for which it was named, is also Italian Renaissance architectural style. Constructed in 1904, the stand-alone cottage encompasses a southern-style front Veranda, three arched, double front doors that welcome guests into a light, spacious great room that is great for an indoor/outdoor reception, and its ten accommodations express a life of elegant leisure.
Cherokee might be smaller in size of the two cottages, but the beauty and charm is nothing less than superb. With the ability to hold events up to 50 people, Cherokee is the perfect setting if a more intimate vibe is what you seek. Many brides choose to have their ceremony on the Cherokee Lawn underneath the shade from breathtaking live oak tree, followed by cocktail hour on the drive and the pleasures of dinner, reception and dancing in the Main Hall and on the Veranda.

If you are searching for a setting that offers a mix between indoor and outdoor setting with added privacy and true southern touches, then call our Sales Department today to book a site visit and head over to view this gorgeous venue!

There is still a good mix of availability for wedding weekends here at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel for 2015, but we expect fill up soon! Go ahead and secure your perfect wedding weekend while you still have the opportunity! We’d love to be a part of your special day that you will cherish forever.
