The tabernacle is amidst the gingerbread cottages. Worth a visit to experience living history. There are services and concerts in the summer.

The tabernacle is shaped like a very large, beautiful, solid, 'tent-revival' open air type building with wooden seats arranged in a semi- circle, facing a stage; wonderful stained glass windows surrounds the upper walls. Victorian-era wooden cottages are around the park-like area, painted in an assortment of gingerbread house-like colors. When you visit, take time to speak to the people... More

This is the place to be Wednesday nights to sing every song you grew up with. Also to be on the third Wednesday in August for the Grand Illumination. It is a special evening with the hundreds of lighted Japanese lanterns lit on all the cottages.

One of my long time friends owns a "gingerbread" cottage in the campground. The historic tabernacle and campground is worth taking the time to stroll through and check out the Victorian architecture.The Grand Illumination takes place on 8/20/14 at 7:30 pm. This is when most of the cottages have their houses decorated with brightly colored lanterns that are lit up... More

We stumbled into this community completely by accident and gave ourselves a walking tour of the cottages. Many of the cottages were painted in technicolor. almost all were well maintained. It was a nice change of pace from the gift shops to wander through this lovely community and admire the gardens and tiny houses. It is closed off to cars... More

This community made you feel like you were in a storybook. I loved everything about this area. Loved the gingerbread houses and would love to buy one and become part of this community.

If in the area, check out this interesting open-air Tabernacle. It has some interesting architectural features, and is very welcoming, with its open sides leading out into the Gingerbread Cottage neighborhood (Oak Bluffs Campground). Much history here, and lots of activities are planned throughout the week to entice locals and visitors to come and enjoy religious, as well as secular... More

While this Tabernacle is lovely, and adds to the history and charm of the Oak Bluffs Campground area, in and of itself it is really not worth a special trip. It is an open-air facility, with lovely stained glass windows and it blends in beautifully with the Gingerbread Cottages which surround it. There are any number of activities scheduled there... More

One of the attractions to include when sightseeing here. Unfortunately there was nothing happening the day we went except for an attending tour bus group, but it was still interesting to take it in. It's also a convenient spot to relax for a bit before venturing further into or having already taken a walk through the Campground.
