It was interesting to see the outside of it. We did not go inside. Our tour bus did not stop but did slow down so you could see the extensive woodwork on the outside.

It was January when we visited, so the site probably didn't pack the same punch it may during warmer months. It's on a drive through road with nothing much else around. Closed to the public with no notification sign or anything to introduce at least an interesting fact or two. The facade could use some retouching. We'll return in the... More

We stayed at the Bed & Breakfast next door to this house. After researching the Wedding cake house on line it was interesting to walk over and see it live. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but if you are in the neighborhood it it an interesting place to drive by.

We didn't make a special trip. We were going by already but it looks dumpy. Glad we didn't go out of our way. It's in need of some TLC.

There is not much to do at this attraction. You arrive, park on the side of the road, snap a few pictures and you are done. I have driven past this house dozens of times over the past ten years. The house is really starting to look weathered. A lot of the paint is faded and peeling. A refurbishment is... More

Thank goodness we had a GPS.. It is a little out of the way, but we were trying to see ALL the sights in Kennebunkport, so we had to find this one. It is very interesting, but a little run down. Interesting story behind it. Be sure to look it up.

We stopped for pictures on a Caravan tour and it was a stupid looking house. They asked if anyone wanted to get off the bus to take pictures and MAYBE 4 people took a picture.

Our B&B host recommended we add this to our "things to do" in Kennebunkport and it was a real treat. A lot of imagination and creativity went into this. My only regret was the lack of any information at the attraction? Maybe a sign with some details would be possible? Just off the beaten path and that's a shame....
