Seasons

A Winnetu Spring

Spring is a special time to be on the island – quiet natural splendor, no summer crowds, and plenty of fun to be had around the island!

Only at the Winnetu

Winnetu is situated in Katama, a peaceful swath of dunes and farms, lined with miles of beaches along the southern end of Edgartown. Scroll down to see what’s waiting for you outside our front door. 

Beach Trails

Enjoy a spectacular walk out to Norton Point, one of the island’s most pristine beaches. Follow nearly 4 miles of walking trails and you’ll find water lapping at your feet, views of Katama Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, and keep an eye out for harbor seals basking in the sun!

Take Flight

Spend a memorable afternoon at one of the neighborhood’s most beloved landmarks. Watch the historic bi-planes take off from Katama Airfield‘s historic grass airstrip while enjoying breakfast or lunch at Right Fork Diner

World-Class Biking

Three world-class bike trips are waiting for you. No matter what your level of sophistication, there’s a bike ride for everyone on Martha’s Vineyard and our concierge will help you plan it. Bring your bike and go explore the island!

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 .
