Good Picture Opportunity

This is a great picture opportunity and we didn't have the time to tour the inside but read the stories and stopped to take pictures. Next next time.

this is one of the most elaborate and beautiful ginger bread houses I've seen in a long time. As you drive down the road, you can't miss it!

Coming from the land of Aus...you definitely don't see much of this style of architecture about so it was definitely a lovely site from the road as you drive by! As it's known as the 'most photographed house' we of course added to those numbers! Striking and particularly pretty on a lovely blue sky day. :)

My wife made the trip out to see this house. While unique in its architecture, it needs some work again to make it into my photo album

The man who built this special place meant it to be a wedding gift.. I will not spoil the story,,.. but this is a special place.. A small admission charge will provide entry . The gift shop has some unique items as well... . Well worth a visit.

Interesting architecture to drive by but there are many examples of that in the area. Was not open for tours and needs some tender loving care but a good drive by/take a photo stop on the list. Nowhere to park; you just pull off the road.

This was a very nice house, but literally you just look at the outside of it. We stopped and took a few pictures, but not necessarily worth going out of your way.

Loved this house and insisted on finding it and taking a picture. I don't think you can go inside- we didn't try either way- and not sure if someone still lives there. It was a very unique house and so old! The paint was peeling and needed repair in some places. Would have loved a bit more history on the... More

It's gothic cool. I don't think they do inside tours. Architectually it is interesting. Old. Even looks like it needs some work but hey when I am 200 plus years old I too will need work. Homes along Summer in Kennebunk are beautiful. Take the road down through the lower village into the port down Ocean then see Walker's Point.... More

I do not understand how you can provide a review for a private dwelling. The Wedding Cake house is NOT open to the public!!!!!!
