Meet The Reservations Team

Adrienne Hindley
Reservations Manager

Adrienne has been with the company almost 25 years, was a Film Major at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. 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, Mass. She 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, cobblestoned downtown Nantucket.

 

Melanie Shain
Operations Manager

Melanie has been with the company since February 2019. She was a Hospitality and Tourism Management major at UMass Amherst. She loves traveling to new places and being outdoors.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

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 and décor.

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

Both Teams treat guests like family, going above and beyond!
