We couldn't get close enough to see very much, but did stop on Ocean ave to take some pictures. The drive does get congested with many cars doing the same thing, so go early!

If you're in Kennebunkport is worth the time to take a short drive along Ocean Ave. Stop along the route to take in the sight of the 41st president's compound. Go during the time between high and low tide so you can view spouting rock in all its glory.

Nice view, but it is just a house with a great ocean view! Lot less traffic since Mr. Bush is no longer Mr. President

Beautiful viewing places of the Bush compound on Walker Point. It is certainly worth the walk or stop when driving past.

Great place to sit and observe. Either of the Bush compound or the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. If you are visiting Kennebunkport you must take this two or three mile drive to see it.

Walker's Point AKA the summer home of George Bush ( senior) is a very picturesque spot... Spouting Rock is nearby and also worth seeing ( at high tide)... The road to Walker's Point has many magnificent "summer cottages'... Go early for parking.

If you're in the Kennebunk Port area, Maine, the Bush Family compound is worth a look. Unlike the Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport, Massachusetts which is hidden by trees and foliage, the Bush compound is located on a small peninsula in Maine so quite visible from a distance, since no trees impede the views. Getting a parking spot on Ocean Road... More

We were driving along ocean ave and stopped at the scenic view to see Walkers point. Its big and beautiful and they even have the flag of Texas flying in the lawn. I found it so endearing though im not Texan.
