All we could say is Cute!!!! There are so many of these old cottages on Martha's Vineyard. Amazing to see all the gingerbread and colors and styles. Not a far walk from where the ferry lets you off.

Did not realise the Gingerbread Houses existed and wandered into them by accident. We admired the houses and found the museum which although very small was very informative and the guide very informative.

The best $2.00 tour! The women who provided the presentation was extremely knowledgeable providing detailed insight to the history of the community. The artifacts in the cottage were authentic and the photos were interesting.

Make this your first stop when visiting the world-famous Martha's Vineyard Gingerbread Campground in Oak Bluffs. A wonderful glimpse at 19th century life in this unique community. The helpful staff will get you oriented.

The Cottage Museum is an authentic gingerbread home. Great local artifacts. From the old photographs to the furniture and clothes, you get an idea of 19th century Cottage City.
