Season 2020

What We're Doing to Keep You and Your Family Safe this Season

Dear Guest,

We realize you are considering where to visit this year very carefully and want to put your mind at ease when you choose to vacation with us! 

Both of our New England Resorts, Winnetu Oceanside Resort on Martha’s Vineyard and The Nantucket Hotel and Resort, are Four Diamond-rated properties that are impeccably clean and cared for.

All suites and private cottages on Nantucket are ample sized and have full kitchenettes- just like a private home, but with resort services. This year we’re also offering extended stay options at great savings for those looking for a longer getaway.  

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!

What We're Doing to Keep You and Your Family Safe

UPDATED: July 24, 2020 

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. Currently, the lower COVID-19 states are NY, NJ, CT, ME, RI, VT, NH and HI. All lodging and short term rental entities are required to inform guests at 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. 

If you choose an Extended Stay with us in our hotel enjoy 25% off the regular rate. We offer private kitchens and kitchenettes with dining area and housekeeping services in our suites and private cottages and all hotel services.

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

Congratulations to our third #MyVintageSummer winner, Laurie Donahue, whose vintage family summer photograph we used to create this poster for our 2020 Season.

Laurie’s photo captures exactly the kind of summertime energy we’re channeling to make this summer just as memorable as summers that came before it.
