Season 2021

Dear Guest,

With the season fast on its way and restrictions easing in response to lower infection rates, we look forward to welcoming guests new, old, and especially those who couldn’t join us last year due to the pandemic. We’re looking forward to a full season of the rituals and traditions of summer on the Vineyard.

This year we’re offering the same warmth and hospitality that guests love alongside responsible efforts to keep everyone safe. This includes masks, socially distant environments, proactive sanitizing, and a commitment to keeping up with the recommendations and mandates from the CDC and the Governor’s office. 

We’re a family and you, our beloved guests, are part of that family. We look forward to welcoming you to our resorts, entertaining your children, preparing meals for you, (even delivering them to your accommodation!), and sharing your joy as you happily bond with your loved ones while on vacation with us this season!

The Latest from Massachusetts

Effective Monday, March 22, the Massachusetts Travel Order will be replaced with a Travel Advisory.  

The new travel advisory will urge all persons entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, are advised to quarantine for 10 days upon their arrival if they have been out of the state for 24 hours or more.  

The advisory does not apply to anyone in the following categories:

  • Anyone who is returning to Massachusetts after an absence of fewer than 24 hours. 
  • Travelers who have a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72 hours prior to their arrival in Massachusetts. 
  • Workers who enter Massachusetts to perform critical infrastructure functions (as specified by the Federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) while they are commuting to or from or while at work.
  • Travelers who are fully vaccinated (i.e. who have received two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines OR who have received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 14 days or more ago and who do not have symptoms). 

Travelers are additionally encouraged to consult and follow the CDC’s guidelines and requirements for travel. 

Governor Baker has just announced that effective August 1st, all travelers entering Massachusetts—both out of state residents and Massachusetts residents returning home—must comply with a new travel order. This includes students returning to campuses for the fall semester.

The new travel order requires all visitors and returning residents to fill out a Massachusetts Traveler Form unless they are coming from a state that has been designated a lower risk COVID-19 state or fall into an exemption category. As of 11/30/20, the lower COVID-19 states are HI; however, this is subject to change so please see the link below to confirm your state’s status. All lodging and short-term rental entities are required to inform guests at the time of booking, on websites, and on-site. All lower risk states will be updated regularly by DPH.   

The new travel order also provides that visitors and returning residents arriving in Massachusetts from any place other than a COVID-19 lower-risk state must quarantine for 14 days unless they can produce a negative COVID-19 test result administered on a sample taken not more than 72 hours prior to arriving in Massachusetts.

Click here to read the full details of this travel order. 

We follow all recommendations for the safe operation of our children’s programs. We are awaiting further guidance from public authorities for any new regulations this summer. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

  • All common area surfaces are wiped down frequently each day.
  • Gloves are worn when our bellmen are assisting with luggage.
  • We sanitize credit cards and our keys with wipes when handled.

Our fitness facility has been expanded to allow for proper social distance in the gym and for outdoor yoga classes

The hotel at the Winnetu Oceanside Resort is a Four Diamond rated property.  All of our 1-4 bedroom suites, and private cottages at the hotel and our privately owned townhouses, duplexes and single family homes are always carefully cleaned and sanitized. All have their own full kitchen or kitchenette and outside, private entrances.  You can choose from our 1-4 bedroom suites, cottages and private homes. Let us be your “home away from home” this vacation season.

1-4 bedroom suites and private cottages at the Hotel, for your safety, are equipped with:

  • Electrostatic sprayers, used by our staff, to deliver an electric charge to a disinfectant to help it adhere to surfaces through your accommodation.
  • Complimentary reusable water bottles so you never have to use a drinking glass
  • Slippers so you need not touch the floor in bare feet
  • Liquid hand soap

This year, to reduce the number of staff going in and out, we have every-other-day housekeeping service at the hotel.

Of course, you can have less or no housekeeping at all. Just let us know and we’re happy to accommodate your personal requests.

 

3-4 bedroom privately owned Townhouse, Duplex and Single Family Homes, for your safety, are equipped with:

  • Electrostatic sprayers, used by our staff, to deliver an electric charge to a disinfectant to help it adhere to surfaces through your accommodation.
  • Liquid hand soap
  • Weekly housekeeping service.
  • Our restaurant is spacious and airy.
  • All tables are situated six-feet apart and menus are one-time-use.
  • We follow all guidelines for safety procedures in the restaurants.  We also offer take-out and room service and have private dining rooms for guests to reserve for their family and friends.
  • Please visit the DINING section of our website to learn more about our offerings this year. 

We seat non-connected family members one seat apart in all our vans and antique vehicles. 

We offer grocery shuttle trips
