Cool to see Presidential Summer Home

You can get relatively close, considering, especially on the one side, to get a pretty good look at the compound.

Just a drive by, don't think there is really anything to do on the point, and I don't think you can get on there.

It is a little out of the way but then you are in Maine, everything is a little out of the way. Great view of the ocean and overall view of the Presidential house but not worth going out of your way for. If you are staying in or stopping by Kennebunkport then by all means find your way out...

You can't get close; secret service is there. But, you can stop and take a picture. It's a nice vies and nice house.

We have been years before, but had forgotten how beautiful the view there is. Breathtaking, and of course we always look forward to getting pics of President Bush's residence.

It is a great view of the coast. Being a private summer residence of President George H.W. Bush it is only accessible to view from the roadway. Our visit was in winter and during the off season so there is no activity but a large home with a great location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and is worth the time to... More

You will get to look across the bay at the wonderful retirement retreat and home of former President Bush. This can be seen from Ocean Avenue.

This point gives you some of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. The whole coastline is beautiful and could only imagine what it looks like during summer. This point also allows you a great view of the Bush compound. I had read and seen pictures of this place growing up, it lived up to what I thought the... More

The Bush compound is protected by Secret Service, especially when the family is in town, so you cannot get access. Why would you want to bother them anyway? Walker's Point is beautiful - typical Maine rocky shore and the views are breathtaking and accessible all along the way from the Colony Hotel. Best to walk it. Every step is lovely... More

We located this beautiful area of Kennebunkport (a little out of town) and had amazing views of the Bush Family Compound across the water. Its a lovely place befitting the Bushes. This family has been in this area for many decades and all we could think of was what a truly beautiful place to retire to. Would definitely recommend going... More
