The MV Campground is an amazing location with its gingerbread homes placed right next to each other. They all have charming front porches and many circle the Campground Tabernacle which is both a religious center and a place where incredible concerts transpire during the summer months. There is also an incredible day called Illumination Night. This is always in August... More

We take every guest to see the Campground because other than San Fran you won't find these unique Painted Lady properties. I learn something new every time I go. Stop and talk to the people sitting on their porches. I have taken 2 guided tours to better understand the history of the community

Spent about 1 hr just walking around and taking it all in. Colorful Gingerbread houses galore in a park setting make for a relaxing afternoon stroll. Much history here as well, all explained in a small on site museum so take it all in and enjoy!

I visited Martha's Vineyard in October 2015 and found myself enchanted by these beautiful cottages sat in the most serene environment. The Museum run by local residents is a must to visit, as the whole interesting history of the cottages is explained. Not to be missed.

A must see in oak bluff. 300 Victorian gingerbread homes. Must of them tiny and oh so quaint and colourful. History is intriguing

You can't visit Oak Bluff's without spending an hour or some walking around 'campground'. Originated as a 19th century Methodist (I believe) summer revival meeting camp, over the years rings and rings of small, charming, colorful Victorian homes were built around the central part and tabernacle. There is also a delightful church on campground--lovely and welcoming in season, and a... More

I knew this existed, but could not find the area, till we stopped a local and asked, sure enough she knew what I was looking for and pointed the way. I could have stayed in this are for hours, taking pictures and exploring the area. Unbelievable this has been here since the 1860's and 1870's. It must have been a... More

What a delightful walk through the Wesleyan Campground seeing the gingerbread houses and being taken back to the world of the 19th century camp meetings.

Our short 45 minute walk was filled with wonder! I've never seen anything like this place in my life. My only complaint is that we could never find the "museum" house that allowed a walk through...better signage would be helpful.
