sorry I am just seeing your comment. These homes were built in the mid to late 1800s. The style is called carpenter gothic. More info on the Oak Bluffs campground is here: http://www.mvcma.org/history/brief-history-of-mvcma/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Eclectic Cottages of Oak Bluffs
Hanging plants and hydrangeas rule here.
Becky Harris added this to Bashful and Blush
Pink flowers and pink trim give this cottage personality.
Becky Harris added this to Cottage Bliss
Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard is perhaps the capital of cutest cottages in the world. These are the gingerbread variety.
If you were building a home in the style of Mary Engelbreit, its exterior would be charming and almost fairytale like. It would be "that" house...the one that MAKES you drive a block out of your way as you're headed home, just so you can pass by it and smile.
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Get the Hang of a Hammock
If you want your hammock to live underneath your shaded porch or balcony, you can often attach it to two of the walls or pillars. Most professionals recommend that you hang the sides of your hammock at least 12 feet apart —or its anchor points should be two feet longer than the overall length of your hammock. If you don't have enough space at first, try going at a diagonal!
Laura Fenton added this to Have a Ball With Hydrangeas
A typical gingerbread cottage in the Oak Bluffs area of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, has purple-hued hydrangeas and green, leafy hostas.
Samantha Schoech added this to 11 Real-Life Gingerbread Houses
The full cottage effect.
Becky Harris added this to Swing Into National Hammock Day
Accent for a covered porch. In the town of Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, porches bedecked in carved details are a must. A shaded hammock perch makes the most of the covered space.

We love the hydrangeas, but realize the full sun in the front won't allow them. But perhaps they could go on the east side of the front porch where they'd only get morning sun.
