Hundreds of gingerbread cottages all in a row |

6 Jun

A fairy tale land came to life! That is how we felt in the Campmeeting Association campground in Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard. Over 300 beautiful cottages – some dating back to the 1800s – are home to year-round and seasonal residents. The colorful cottages, now listed in the National Register of Historical Places, are a short walk from the dog-friendly Steamship Authority ferry.

What started as a religious tent settlement back in the 19th century has turned into an interdenominational community. Some of the cottages have remained in the same family for generations. (Mom said we probably can’t live there since we are so noisy!) But we did meet a cute Westie who was sitting on his porch as his parents did some renovations around their house. They stopped their work when they saw us and came to meet us. They love terriers as much as mom does!
