“Awe inspiring”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

To walk among the places where this country's captains of industries and their families once came to frolic and escape the North's harsh winters, it was amazing!

“Must See!!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

You can walk around to enjoy the ambiance..... but it's also fun to enter the cute little gift shops that are housed in turn of the century historical cottages. Highly recommended!

“Not what I expected, but it was great”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I didn't expect that when we stayed at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel that that WAS in fact the historic district. But after we realized that, it was pretty amazing!! The trolley ride around which included going into two houses was excellent.

“Neat gifts”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

These are little cottages that they have turned into gift shops. I promise you will find something here that you can't get anywhere else. People who work in these shops are so friendly and they make you feel welcome.

“Like stepping back in time”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Very well done preservation/restoration of another era. Seeing the "cottages" owned by the robber barons and the lifestyle they led are worth the visit. The Jekyll Island Club is part of the property and worh seeing too.
