Top Reasons Guests Choose the Island Cottages

Sans Souci Exterior.

Sans Souci

Constructed in 1896 as a six-unit apartment building owned in part by J.P. Morgan, today Sans Souci affords its guests effortless comfort, breathtaking elegance, and sophisticated details. Its name connotes the carefree experience the members anticipated on Jekyll Island, meaning “without worry.” The building is located just across the croquet field that sits in front of the Clubhouse and features 24 Victorian style guest rooms.

Crane Cottage

Renowned for its a sunken garden, lush courtyard, and elegant fountains, Crane Cottage is considered the most lavish of all the Island Cottages. The Italian Renaissance-inspired building houses 13 recently refreshed guest rooms, intimate public spaces, such as the Crane Library and Crane Living Room, and an enchanting courtyard.
