What do Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket have in common?
Vineyard residents can take advantage of a one-time opportunity to answer that question later this month when the Winnetu Oceanside Resort is offering a special getaway offer to visit our sister island.
Expanding on its tradition of offering free lodging to Island residents in Katama in the off-season, the Winnetu is offering residents a one-time chance to stay at its newly acquired inn on Nantucket, the Nantucket Hotel and Resort. A specially chartered Hy Line fast ferry will make the round-trip visit, leaving the Vineyard on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 30, and returning Monday afternoon, Oct. 1.
Participants pay only a $25 room cleaning fee to stay in a room or suite that can accommodate up to two adults and three children, but must agree to pay for at least two entrees per accommodation at the hotel’s restaurant, the Breeze Bar & Café. Participants also pay the cost of the ferry, $70 round trip for adults and $44 for children ages 5 to 12. Only Vineyard residents are eligible and space is limited.
Mark Snider, owner of the Winnetu, purchased the former Point Breeze hotel in Nantucket and reopened it this summer as The Nantucket Hotel. The iconic inn, dating to 1891, is within walking distance to downtown Nantucket and features a new fitness center with swimming pool.
In addition to the Nantucket offer, the Winnetu will be offering its popular stay-vacations for Islanders at its Katama hotel on select evenings in late September and October. The deal provides free lodging for Island residents who agree to pay a $25 room cleaning fee and have dinner at the Lure restaurant.
