What a little find these houses are and we came upon them completely by accident. They're known locally as the gingerbread houses and you can see why. All individually designed and decorated with beautiful gardens and attention to detail. Some of them are holiday lets and I have to say you do feel a bit guilty looking at them and... More

I saw those lovable houses back in 2005, and couldn't wait all those years to take my daughters to see it and have same "Oh my God, so cute" experience. Now each of us has own favorite house :) and my husband admires Trinity Park Tabernacle. Nice and relaxed place to be. Can walk and seat on lawn, which is... More

This little camp of houses in Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard is nothing like a camp. All cottages were loaded with gingerbread details and were brightly painted and ready to show the world how beautiful this little hidden gem shines! We loved the walk and how each home had its own character.

We had a lovely time walking around through this enclave of "gingerbread houses." The vast majority of the houses are very well maintained and the bright, contrasting colors and gorgeous flowering plants make for a photographer's dream. This is what I think of when I think of Martha's Vineyard - not the tourist traps of Vineyard Haven.

I went to the Tabernacle years ago and was so impressed with the multicolored gingerbread houses there...blocks and blocks of them. I've wanted to do something similar to my own gingerbread house since! Went back on this vacation to see which color scheme I liked the best. There are too many to chose just one! Will be reviewing the photos... More

The Gingerbread Houses is always the highlight of any trip to Oak Bluffs in Martha's Vineyard! The houses are adorable, very tiny with beautiful detail. It looks like a tiny village behind the beach town stores of Oak Bluffs. There are many streets that don't permit cars which allows the locals, tourists and children to walk safely and admire the...

We were told we should visit by several people. Lines like -- you won't be disappointed, it's creates a sense of wonder, it's a delight. They were all correct, it is such a delight it should not be missed.

This is a beautiful, historic grouping of multiple gingerbread cottages that form the MVCMA. You can walk the entire campground and no two homes are alike. If you have the change to go to Illumination Night - when they light paper candles on the porches - it is a true experience.

Loved the architecture and the well-kept homes with the relaxing porches on small lots. When houses began to be built, they could only be as wide as your tent, for tent meetings, had been. All houses have indoor plumbing and bathrooms. No air conditioners allowed. Nice quiet place to rent a home for a week.
