5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

So freaking pretty. It's like being in a fairytale. The cottages are beautiful. Also stop in the museum/gift shop, you won't be disappointed.

“Adorable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

When I stepped into the courtyard area, I thought I was in Candy Land. Each place a little different and so quiet and peaceful! Loved it!!

“If you go to Martha's Vineyard you MUST see the gingerbread cottages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Easy access from Ferry and VTA bus stop in Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard.

This is something unique... we've been in 66 countries and the closest thing is Oberammergau, Germany (home of the Passion Play).
If you go to MV and don't see this... you've made a big mistake.

“Do not miss this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

The houses here are just wonderful eye candy! There were many more than I initially imagined; the streets just keep curving and meandering around with colorful houses, one after the other. Definitely go here.

“Never seen anything like it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The old campground is a very pleasant place to take a stroll. The styling on the cottages is unbelievable and it's quite an experience to be surrounded by hundreds of them. Some are in better repair than others, but overall it was a colorful feast for the eyes (and camera). Given that it's free to visit and located extremely convenient to the Oak Bluffs ferry, there's no reason not to see it if you're on the Vineyard. I can imagine that a shutterbug could happily spend several hours here, but 30-60 minutes is enough time for a very enjoyable stroll through the campground. If you grab one of the free tourist maps before you head into the campground it will be easier to keep your bearings and find your way out when you've had enough.
