I include the stone church in this review. It is historic, quaint, open and welcoming. obviously set up for oceanfront weddings, as well. The home church for the Bush family, it is a must-see.

Walkers Point is the actual location of the Bush's compound and the road is restricted to authorized vehicles only. You cannot see anything from Ocean avenue. You have to view from across the bay with high powered binoculars. The rest of the view from across the bay is beautiful but it you are coming to Kennebunkport just for Walkers point... More

Great to see, but be prepared for the winding road and heavy traffic! It is located in a residential area and can be very congested.

Beautiful view of the home of George H.W. and Barbara Bush. It is amazing...spectacular setting. Little doubt why they love Maine.

I loved walking to Walker's Pt. on a beautiful day. I disliked all the crossing back and forth to be on the sidewalk.

The drive along the water was spectacular. Just past the Bush compound was a rocky inlet where we could park the bike and sit or climb down to the shoreline. The views and sense of calming perspective were incredible. The Bush residence was impressive, of course. Historical elegance.

I had read about the water spout on Trip Advisor. We got directions at the city hall. Parking is a short distance away. As the tide is coming in some of the water goes down in a hole in the rocks and then spouts out. The rocks gave us a good vantage point to the Bush Compound. the whole drive... More

Can see why the Bush family love this location. We came by to see the compound from the road-side and we not surprised to see fellow-tourists looking intently in case the family was in residence and gave us a view. Actually, the distance is not very far and when Barbara and Laura were seen in the garden just outside the... More

Very cool to visit a place where Presidents, Dignitaries, Socialites and others have been. Knowing that two presidents have vacationed here, and at least one other president (Clinton) has visited makes this place special. Worth the little drive to see if you are in the area.
