Meet The Reservations Team

Adrienne Hindley
Reservations Manager

Adrienne has been with the company almost 25 years, was a Film Major from Clark University in Worcester, MA and even attended a semester at Beverly Hills High School.  After graduation from college, her family built a small country inn in her home town of Sudbury, MA and has lived and loved the hospitality business ever since!

What’s your favorite part of the job?

I spend most days on managerial tasks however I just love the days when I am needed on the phones and I get to talk to the guests!

 

What is your favorite part of each property?

At both properties, from the second you walk in the door, you are treated like a family member; I love the open spaces and the sound of the ocean at Winnetu and the charm of quaint, cobble stoned downtown Nantucket

 

Donna Aykanian
Assistant Reservations Manager

Donna is from Marlboro, MA and has been working in Reservations for 16 years.  When not working, she enjoys walks, early morning workouts at her favorite Gym and enjoying weekends on Cape Cod with her family.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

Establishing relationships with repeat guests who have become more like old friends

 

What is your favorite part of each property?

Winnetu –

Short trip from the mainland and Coastal location; lots of green space for families/couples to roam around and explore and you can’t beat the South Beach location.  Beautiful any time of year!  Great team of many long time returning employees who love their jobs and this property and want guests to love it too!

Nantucket –

Historic and beautifully appointed; in-town location makes it convenient to walk to shops, movies, museums, restaurants, etc.  Always something going on year-round on Nantucket.  Great team of dedicated staff eager to assist you and create a magical experience you won’t soon forget!!

All our resorts make each guest feel so special a home away from home

I love being a part of planning guests’ vacations and hearing about the memories they’ve made!

What’s your favorite part of each property?

Nantucket:  So close to everything in town, beautiful rooms & decor

Winnetu: Quick walk to South Beach, amazing amenities and activities especially for families

Both Teams treat guests like family going above and beyond!

What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part of my job is having the ability to introduce new systems and techniques for our reservations agents so they have the tools to help you plan your dream vacation!

What’s your favorite part of each property?

My favorite part of Nantucket is being able to walk downtown to all of the shops and restaurants! At Winnetu and Mattakesett my favorite thing to do is go down to the beach and take pictures!

We’re thrilled to announce the appointment of Colin Coyle to Executive Chef at the Winnetu! . You could say that Colin was born in a kitchen, as his father has been a professional chef for his entire life. However, officially Colin got his start in the culinary-arts in Florida at The Dye Preserve Country Club in 2012 and progressed to have more and more responsibility in better and better kitchens throughout South Florida – usually holding down multiple culinary jobs to get as much exposure to various cuisines, techniques and flavor profiles as possible. No stranger to the Vineyard, Colin has been at the very busy and highly acclaimed Red Cat Kitchen in Oak Bluffs as the Sous Chef, for Restaurateur Ben Deforest, the last 4 summers. ...

All calm and bright in the new year | 📸: @vineyardlights .
