A retreat for the nation’s wealthy and powerful at the turn of the 20th century, Jekyll Island Club Hotel continues to capture the feel of the Gilded Age, from its towering turret, to its riverfront veranda, to its sunken gardens. Sitting at a table in the Grand Dining Room, waiting for the dinner dance to begin, it’s easy to imagine yourself rubbing elbows with the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers.
The atmosphere is relaxing, and suits both romance and a family vacation. You can choose soft piano music and a moonlit stroll over the lawns (and stage a wedding to remember in Faith Chapel),or a boisterous family picnic at the private, beachside pavilion.
Jekyll Island Club hotel is on Jekyll Island, about midway between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL. Boat docking is available at Jekyll Wharf and the Jekyll Harbor Marina, and there's a private airstrip. Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is 75 miles north, Jacksonville International is 58 miles south.
