I have seen pictures of Walker's Point, but they do not do the actual view justice! The day we were there the Bush compound was very busy-secret service out on their boat following A Bush boat. There is a place for cars to pull over and take pictures or just look. Watching the waves crash and spray on the point... More

Beautiful view. Clear sky's and perfect weather. The waves on the rocks around Walkers Point were breathtaking. I even got a shot of a nearby sailboat. Worth the drive to see. People in the town were very friendly. I would visited again.

Take the drive along Ocean Avenue, just north of Kennebunkport and you will see Walker's Point. There's a pull-out on the side of the road where you can get a nice view of the compound. It's less than 5 minutes outside of town. This is an interesting and beautiful home.

It is always interesting to view the Bush compound, but this time, I had an extra-special view of it from the water, as we approached from the whale watch out of Kennebunkport. The grounds look lovely and I can imagine some lively storms out there. Our Whale Watch captain also pointed out the Bush's speed boat at dock. As I... More

Ocean Avenue is a great place to walk or bike ride. Follow it out of Kennebunkport and it will lead you to Walker's Point where you can see George Sr's beachfront property. The Bush's actually were headed out for a yacht cruise and were very friendly when passing by.

Some of our family saw the Bush's outside - but we did not. Fun to see the homes, boats and the anchor monument.

We pulled off the road to take pictures. It was a beautiful spot. And the Texas flag was flying, so apparently President George HW Bush was home. :)

We stopped at the small parking area near Walker's point to see the Bush's compound. It was definitely a sight worth seeing. Our family back home was impressed with our pictures of the lovely buildings there and we were glad to have the opportunity to see this well-known presidential summer home.

Ocean Avenue is a scenic loop heading out of Kennebunkport Bay with a couple of restaurants just past the docks, then follows the coast showcasing impressive homes, gorgeous ocean views, historical St Ann's Episcopal Church (circa 1887) which should not be missed, with a generous parking area and fantastic view. Turn right from the parking lot continue 1/4 mile through... More
