Cottage City part of Oak Bluffs consist of 100’s of colorful Ginger Bread cottages and Victorian homes.  This seaside town was established as a religious retreat in 1835.  This community has the best preserved Gothic style and architecture in the world.  There are over 300 of these colorful Gothic revival private homes still there.  Most of these homes are only occupied during the summer months since they do not have any heating systems.  They are vey rarely for sale since they are handed down from family member to family member.
