We had invited Stephen but he was not able to attend, of course we did not talk trash about him regardless of any ugly rumors which may get back to him.
Jekyll Island is a fascinating place for those who like history, it was only accessible by boat and until the mid 1950's but in the late 1800's it was the winter getaway for the most wealthy in America. Families like the Rockefellers, Goodyears, Fords etc would arrive via steam boat to this island paradise to hunt, fish, golf etc. It is said when they got together for a banquet they represented almost 20% of the wealth in the entire world.
It was abandoned before WWII and the State of Georgia took it over and it is now a State Park, there is however hotels, restaurants, private residents and a campground on the island which is only about 5 or 6 miles long and maybe 1 mile wide average.
The "Jekyll Island Club" as it was called had a big club house which is still a hotel and actually very reasonably priced.
Last I heard room could be had for about $100 per night, about the same as the Holiday inn and Comfort inn on the island.
Another example of one of their modest winter 'cottages'
There is however quite a few shops on the island.
There are miles of bike and walking trails.
If you get a chance to visit Jekyll Island it is worth the trip.
