Best Places to Work in Maine

The Nonantum Resort has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Maine again.
bptw-galaThe Nonantum team was recognized at the Best Places to Work in Maine awards ceremony on October 4, 2016. (Pictured here: General Manager Tina Hewett-Gordon and Innkeeper Jean Ginn Marvin with our first year staff members).
For the second year in a row, Nonantum employees who were surveyed said they appreciate working for managers who have an open door policy and are personally invested in the success of each individual. The Nonantum was voted the best place to work because employees truly enjoy working with one another and have a great sense of pride in what they do.
“This is a direct reflection on each and every one of YOU!” Innkeeper Jean Ginn Marvin told her staff. “I think we won because the people who work here genuinely feel cared about. Our General Manager Tina Hewett-Gordon does an excellent job of listening to all concerns and her open door policy means people can reach her whenever they need to and share whatever is on their mind. Tina is also willing to do whatever needs to be done and seeing her help out whenever we need assistance is a huge motivator to our employees.”
The team also understands that family comes first, and managers are sympathetic to balancing work with family life.
“The Nonantum is unique as a place to work in that we are much more than co-workers – we are also members of The Nonantum Family,” said Ginn Marvin. “The Nonantum is family-owned and operated. We take care of each other. Many of us have been here for many years and watched each other’s kids grow up. Every person who works here knows their co-workers genuinely are interested in ensuring they are successful.”

Among the staff, there is a sense of camaraderie. And the resort’s mission statement actually includes things like “be nice” and “have fun.” There is also a culture of community involvement, as The Nonantum encourages giving back and volunteering – with local charities or community organizations and associations.
The statewide survey awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Maine, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and business. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Maine program, visit
