This place is very small sort of like a tiny house. It looks sort of like an antique store on the inside. Hard to know if things were authentic or just standard decor. I spent less than five minutes inside, but still worth stepping in.

The area is quite large and there are so many different small cottages that they refer to as the Gingerbread Cottages. It is a must see when you are on Martha;s Vineyard.

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.
