Definitely worth a pull over if in the area - after all the years of hearing about their summer home it was fun to see in person

It is a tourist attraction, but one that is boring! You gaze across the inlet to see a brown house. It is not beautiful, nor is it great architecture to seek out!

Or a bike by. It's a piece of presidential interest and history. The area around it is a beautiful drive.

Good spot to stop along Ocean Ave; overviews a neat inlet. Great wave action along outcropping of rocky shore. Can only imagine how pretty it can be in summer.

As longtime supporters of the Bush family, we couldn't wait to stop and take a look from Walker's Point. It was exciting to see that they were in residence, as the flag was flying! It was easy to find, and gave a great view of this big compound. I would absolutely stop again if I was in the area.

Obviously tourists are not allowed within maybe a mile. There's a pullover spot that limits parking to :15 only. This is a nice view of the property. Pictures are decent from the only spot available, which is an extra lane on a two lane road.

Always was curious as to the Kennebunkpot home the the Bushes so often talked about. And there it was! A full view right across an inlet. Its amazing. The drive right along the coast of Maine was amazing.

Park and walk. Ride your bike here. Plan a picnic (just not this time of year). Enjoy the sights of former president compound.
