My husband and I took a mini trip upon his return from a 18 month deployment to Iraq. We stayed in Crane Cottage instead of the Main Lodge. My husband did not want have been "dressed" for dinner with the required jacket for men to dine in the main dining room so we ate at the restaurant Crane Cottage. It was fabulous and resonably priced. My husband still talks about his Ribeye being the best that he had. I had one of the wine flights they were offering, which was very nice.
Make sure you try one of Kenny's Lemon Drop Martini's at the bar in the Lodge. They are not to be missed!!
You can play tennis, ride bikes (bikes available), play croquette-proper attire required and provided, walk on the beach, explore shops, learn the history of the island as well as the Jekyll Island Club itself.
We live in Savannah and this is less than 2 hours from us. Even though we are close to home, I always able to relax and enjoy my time away from the stresses of daily life and work!!
My mom, aunt, and a friend stayed for a couple of nights in Crane Cottage several years ago during a horrible summer thunderstorm that cause a lightning strike that set the gym at Glynn Academy on fire and the power went out during our dinner at the Crane Cottage restaurant. We ate by candlelight and had a fabulous meal because the kitchen operates on gas stoves and such.
Also was there with my mother, my mother-in-law and her sister's for the day and we got to drinking Kenny's Lemon Drops and stayed for Dinner that night before driving back to Savannah!
If you are there on Sunday morning make sure to allow time for the Sunday Champagne Brunch!! Fabulous made to order omlets, champagne, sweet and savory items, salads, desserts, order off of the menu ffor selections like eggs benedict or turkey with dressing...depending on the time of year and days selections.
