This is a beautiful home with gorgeous views. The day we went it was dreary, windy and cold, but that did not take away from the beauty of the estate. If you are in the area, you should take it in.

Just a few minutes up the coast from Kennebunkport center is this beautiful view of the rocky coast. The drive leading to the entrance to the Bush Compound is beautiful, and you have to see Walker Point. I don't care what others have said, their location is gorgeous and you wish you could get invited past the gates! We have... More

Head along Ocean Drive to see some spectacular mansions on Maine's coast, one of them being The Bush complex on Walker's Point. You really can't miss it, and although I would say it's not the most grandiose of the mansions on this stretch, it's the only one set on it's own peninsula out on the water with multiple homes and...

You can crawl by in your car and look. You can also pull over, stop and stare. Remember what your mother taught you? It's rude to stare.

Walker's Point is a beautiful spot to take in the view of former President Bush's oceanfront home. The ocean is gorgeous and there is a wonderful place to pull off the road to snap a few photos and savor the beauty that is coastal Maine. You will not want to miss this drive. It is only a short piece out... More

it always surprises me how many people want to stop and look at this. Nice view of the Bush compound projecting into the Atlantic. Hey, if you are a Bush hater don't waste your time. But if you aren't it is a nice brief pilgrimage site.

We took a side trip as I wanted to see President Bush's summer home. What a beatiful home he has and what a beautiful village this is. Enjoy the mansions along Ocean Blvd and then spend a bit of time walking the main streets and going into the beatiful, quaint shops. This was completely unexpected but very pleasant. Will be... More

Something you do once... Park along Ocean Ave and stare at the bush compound. It is free! All the mansions along there are super nice.

While staing in Cape Porpoise a Harbor we stopped by Walker's Point several times. There are pull offs near the home where you can stop and observe the Bush Home as well as the beautiful rocky beach and ocean waves. A great spot to stop and see while in Kennebunkport Note: be careful! Lots of cars and tourists in the... More

Enjoy a scenic drive, cycle ride or walk along the ocean coastline road enjoying the wonderful surroundings and views to Walker's Point. Upon a turn in the road and across the bay lies a large mansion estate situated on point of headland. With the ocean crashing against the rocks below this impressive residence with its well kept grounds and flags... More
