This is a very unique story. Very neat place to see. The tabernacle is very impressive to think it is stood for so long. The little gingerbread houses are cute and fun to see.

It’s always fun to walk through the grounds of the Martha’s Vineyard Camp and Meeting Association (MVCMA). We especially enjoyed it this fall with our teenage daughter who took photos of the colorful gingerbread cottages. The MVCMA includes the Tabernacle at the heart of the...More

We enjoyed walking and seeing sites in this area. Very cool cottages to view and the location is not far from the ferry landing. Where they have a good walkway to use.

Walking the pathways from these quaint homes to other things in the village bring the past back. My wife's favorite was La Vie en Rose. A beautiful quirky example of the local 1800's architecture.

This area has a clear history in the Methodist camp and is still active today. Service on Sunday, song night on Wednesday in the off season. We walked around here 3 times to enjoy the properties, the greenery and the area in general.

A 48 hour stop over on Martha’s Vineyard en-route to Nantucket was well worth the extra ferry, even though we had a day of almost constant rain. We took the Peter Pan bus from Boston to Woods Hole to catch the ferry. A must see...More

Hi, There is a walking tour of this very quaint area. You can either visit the museum and gift shop to get information, or there are also fliers available at a couple of the entryways. They are very hard to miss. Have fun!

There are tours offered every Tuesday and Thursday morning, led by a campground resident. Tickets may be purchased online or just before the tour. As far as finding an informal "volunteer" guide, people are super friendly... More

Taking some time I would say a 45 minute stroll. Restaurants are 5 minute walk, if you are a good walker everything is convenient. If you haven't had all you wanted of the cottages go back after you have eaten, lighting has... More
