The Jekyll Island Club Hotel has many choices for receptions. The Club Ballroom, which accommodates up to 250 people for a reception and 130 for sit-down meals, opens through four sets of double doors onto the veranda overlooking the Annex Courtyard. Frequently, a bride situates the hors d’ oeuvres and cocktail bar on the veranda, and guests enjoy the opportunity to circulate inside and outside.
Recently added to the Hotel’s collection of historic accommodations are the newly renovated Crane Cottage and Cherokee Cottage. Adding a total of 23 additional rooms and suites, the Italian Renaissance style cottages also have 2,000 square feet of unusually beautiful event space. Cherokee Cottage, the smaller of the two, has 10 charming rooms and suites, and its great room is delightful for smaller gatherings of up to 40 people. Crane Cottage has a landscaped formal sunken garden with original fountains and upper terrace; this outdoor space is perfect for wedding ceremonies up to 250 people. Additionally, Crane has a fountain courtyard with arcaded loggia and seating for 90-120 people. Faith Chapel, with its Tiffany stained glass window, is across the lane from Crane Cottage and adjacent to Cherokee Cottage.
