Historical!

This is where you can see the summer Bush home that you always here about on the news, and on television. Pretty views and historical place in America!

You'll drive by and see the home of the Bushes. If you're on the road take a look but no need to go out of your way. The home is beautiful but you'll never get close to it.

Wow, we can see why the Bush family loves this vacation spot along Maine's beautiful coast. Its secluded, yet accessible and has a breathtaking view of the coast. We loved our walk to get a glimpse of this home and wish Barbara, George and the family all the best.

We've visited both from the roadside and from the water by tour boat. For us this was interesting especially given there are 2 former Bush Presidents and now JEB is running for office as well as building a home on this property adds to the spice of the visit. While you are unable to visit the property itself, there is... More

We took many pictures from land and sea of Walkers point. It was very interesting to see. The Bush's were there for Barbara's 90th Birthday.

I don't think you have to be a Bush fan to understand the beauty of this place. The summer home of 2 living presidents is something to see! It is a beautiful place but with very limited access on the side of the road. The only availability is a quick stop for a gander. Maybe one day tours will be... More

It is not often that you get to see the home of a living President. I have seen it on TV many times, but seeing it in person was a real treat. Views from the road were unobstructed and we could see persons moving about on the compound.

Great bike ride on Ocean Ave along the ocean. Terrific views of the Bush compound. Great photographic opportunities. Their is a sidewalk, but it can get crowded and people are in the roadway. If driving or biking use caution.
