My family and I have returned to this hotel every summer for more than 5 years. The charm, the location, the service--all of it plays a role in our annual return. The staff is extremely attentive, and the food is wonderful (expensive, but it's worth checking out the Crane Cottage at least once). Rent a bike and spend a day pedaling around the island, go to the beach, hit a few balls at the golf course--you will find something you love. It's true that the old building has its quirks: there are weird creaks and the rooms come in all sizes with no apparent standard, and if you go in the summer the air conditioning with battle with the heat and humidity to keep you cool, but there's always the pool for that. Take the afternoon tour of the building to learn about the hotel's history, and if you're in the area for a few days, try to take a trip to Cumberland Island to see even more examples of the era when the Rockefellers and Carnegies (among others) used the coast of Georgia as a playground.
