Jeykll Island

Off the coast of Georgia....

We found a wonderful treat.... a quiet Oasis to spend a couple days!
Lots of history on this Island...this is the Horton House...
This is the Island Club House... in the Historic area where there are 33 Historic Buildings ...the Wealthy built cottages on this island for their summer retreat. These buildings have been restored...
There are little shops in this area to browse.
There is a nice area to have a lunch or coffee in this garden area..
Pictures of a few of the 'cottages'...
Goodyear Cottage
Rockefellers Cottage
The island is full or HUGE Oak Trees...covered with Spanish Moss...
And did I mention bike trails.... there isn't place on the island you can't bike on!

Beaches... I believe there is 8 miles of sandy beaches..

If you need Island time...this is the place to go...if you like a natural area..with little commercialism...

  1. Beautiful area!

    Hmm, my definition of "cottage" is certainly different than whoever built these large houses. ;o)
