Craigville Real Estate
Craigville is located in the Barnstable village of Centerville. The community includes the popular Craigville Beach area as well as a historic church retreat. Originally built in 1871 as a summer camp for ministers, the Craigville Retreat Center has evolved to host a number of religious, educational and community organizations. The site overlooks the salt marsh of Nantucket Sound and offers guests private beach access, wildlife viewing as well as all the attractions of Cape Cod.
Along the shore, Craigville Beach comprises two separate beaches— one reserved for residents — Covell Beach — and one open to the public — Craigville Beach. Both beaches are equipped with amenities such as bathrooms and showers as well as parking and umbrella and chair rentals. The wide expanse of white sand accommodates sunbathers and beachgoers of all ages while offering views of Martha’s Vineyard across the Nantucket Sound. Residences are largely single family homes ranging from renovated beach cottages with docks to some townhouse communities with water views.
