Crane Cottage


With the beautiful scenery, twinkling lights and historic charm, it’s no wonder that Crane Cottage is the most popular event setting here at the Jekyll Island Club Resort. Built in 1917, this grand, Italian Renaissance-style cottage, adjacent to the main Hotel, has a formal Sunken Garden with beautiful greenery, sparkling fountains and an upper terrace, a fountained Courtyard with bare-bulb lighting and an arcaded loggia, a Reflecting Pool Lawn, an elegant Living Room complete with two oversized fireplaces and a cozy library. Crane’s garden is the perfect setting with its lush trellises and tranquil fountains for romantic wedding ceremonies underneath the sun, followed by the pre-reception gathering filled with cocktails and hors-d'oeuvres on either the Reflecting Pool Lawn or set inside the Living Room. The evening would then continue into the Courtyard for the reception, which is a great setting if you are looking for a mix of indoor and outdoor. Serve guests with either a plated or buffet-style dinner, with dancing and either your band or DJ set in the Living Room. If you’re having a big wedding or if you are worried your group won’t fit in the Courtyard, don’t fret! With the addition of a tent outside the Courtyard, up to 250 people can be accommodated, so everyone can be invited to share in your special day. Crane Cottage also offers some smaller rooms off the main Living Room which are perfect for business meetings. Just like a wedding group can rent Crane Cottage for their entire weekend, corporate groups, retreats, and family reunions can also rent the cottage for their events!
