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.
