Jekyll Island Club Hotel

371 Riverview Dr., Jekyll Island, Georgia, 31527, United States

This sprawling 1887 resort was once described as "the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world." Not so today. The comfortable resort's focal point is a four-story clubhouse, with its wraparound verandas and Queen Anne–style towers and turrets. Rooms, suites, apartments, and cottages are decorated with mahogany and wrought-iron beds, wardrobes, and plush sofas and chairs. Two beautifully restored former "millionaires' cottages"—the Crane and the Cherokee—add 23 elegant guest rooms to this gracefully groomed compound. The B&B packages are a great deal.
