Our Anniversary

April 26th was our anniversary and my husband and I went to one of our favorite places for a few days. Above is a picture of the Jekyll Club Hotel on Jekyll Island, GA.

We have been here several times and always enjoy the beautiful relaxing atmosphere.

The famous landmark turret. This hotel was built as a clubhouse for the rich and famous in 1887.

Beautiful wrap around porch

Small Faith Chapel on the grounds behind the hotel:

The wealthy group built winter cottages to live in while there. The cottages are bigger than most of our homes! This is Crane Cottage a popular place for weddings:

Garden where weddings are held:


The Grand Dining Room:

Okay, back to our anniversary - we were pleasantly surprised with a knock on our door and this was delivered, compliments of the hotel!


The famous landmark logo is etched on the flutes!



We forgot to take pictures of our room, but it was very pretty with a view of Jekyll River.

As you can see we didn't drink the champagne, we aren't really drinkers and don't care for it!
We appreciate the generous gift and will share it with friends sometime soon!


We had a lovely and relaxing time!
Anybody else been to the Jekyll Club hotel?

Now I need to get back to blogging! Maybe soon I will be celebrating 200 Followers! I need to start thinking about how to celebrate this great occasion!

Looks like a beautiful place. Next time you get a bottle of champayne, ask the desk if they would exchange it for non-alcoholic. They usually will! Happy Anniversary!!!
