About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

WE ARE FULLY BOOKED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2016. Please visit us again in September for reservations for summer 2017!

Take a step back to the “good old days” in this charming two-bedroom gingerbread cottage in the campground! The cottage is bright, clean, and cozy, with plenty of space for your family. Enjoy an eat-in kitchen, a comfortable living room, and plenty of outdoor space, including a traditional front porch, back deck, and screened side porch. We also love the amazing outdoor shower.

Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms: one with a full-size bed, and one with two twin beds. Downstairs, the screened porch has a day bed, and the couch pulls out to a queen-size bed so everyone in the family has a space. The cottage also offers a full-size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Relax with your morning coffee on the porch as you watch the world go by, or take a short stroll to downtown Oak Bluffs to enjoy the beach, Flying Horses carousel, restaurants, and shops. This cottage is the perfect place to start a new tradition!

Why Dana chose Martha's Vineyard

When I was six months old, I started coming to Martha's Vineyard for summer vacations. The island is like home for me: warm, familiar, inviting, and uplifting. I am so excited to share our cottage with you!

What makes this cottage unique

The campground is a rare place where neighbors say hello and children ride their bikes through the streets. You can participate in the Wednesday evening sing-along or lose yourself in the charming cottage parks with endless colorful porches.

The town of Oak Bluffs is just a five-minute walk away, where you'll enjoy shopping and dining, as well as the historic Flying Horses carousel. The ferry to Woods Hole also docks in Oak Bluffs, so you can step off the ferry and walk to the cottage - no need for a car!

In the evening, we suggest you visit 'Back Door Donuts,' where you can buy hot and fresh donuts as they are prepared for the morning. It's a sweet ending to the perfect day!

Adorable Little Cottage in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We used to visit the Vineyard annually before we had children; staying in my brother in laws house in Edgartown. This was our first visit back in 15 years and we couldn't wait to show our children what we loved about this island. My dream was to return and stay in a cottage in the Camp Grounds. This cottage was perfect for our family. It was close enough to walk to Circuit Avenue and everything we wanted in Oak Bluffs yet removed from the center Tabernacle area so it was quiet and private. The neighbors are friendly and helpful and the owner was great. She answered all our questions quickly before our trip. Though quaint, the cottage was big enough for our family of 4. We loved the porch for sitting out in the evenings and the back deck was perfect for outdoor dining for meals we prepared in the well stocked kitchen. Having TV and internet, though not necessary for me on vacation, was a must to entertain 2 children in our down time. We can't wait to return to MV again in the future.

Great time at the Vineyard!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Cable TV and internet made it very convenient for all our needs. It was great to stay in the camp grounds. Everyone was very friendly. We bought a bus pass for the week and that worked out great (4 women). Every restaurant was great. Make sure you get back door donuts! The owner was great - very helpful. Looking forward to our next visit.

Family with grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Oak Bluffs. As my son is a year-round resident, we've been traveling to Martha's Vineyard for the past 8 years. We've stayed in West Tisbury, Vineyard Haven, and now the Campgrounds at Oak Bluffs. We absolutely loved the location of this little cottage. Our grandsons had a great time riding their bikes up and down Clinton Avenue. We walked to the beach, restaurants, entertainment at the Tabernacle, church, and arcade. Porch sitting with the locals was also a highlight of my visit in the Campground. With the exception of an outdoor shower, we thought it was perfect for us.
