We did not search for it, but past in front of this house by chance. It is cute, but it seriously needs some renovation.

Run down and not worth the drive to find it. Actually looked kind of spooky. Expected more. Not recommended.

No tour available so not much to see. Worth a stop to admire the architecture but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. Many beautiful period homes in the area though

Unique looking house. I used to live down the street from this house, it draws a lot of attention. Not really a lot to do at this attraction though...pose for pictures is about it.

I saw the Wedding Cake House on TV in "Aerial America - Maine" on the Smithsonian Channel and became curious. Thus, my husband and I decided to drive by during our vacation in Maine. The house can't be visited from the inside. However, I think that the most interesting part of this house lies in its architecture. It was as... More

We enjoyed being able to see the outside of this very unique house in Kennebunk. It is well kept up and a very nice addition to the neighborhood.

I'm sure this was a showplace in its day. The intricate trim is quite amazing but time has taken its toll. An elderly man walking with his dog crossed the lawn while I stopped for a picture. I'm guessing the upkeep of this huge place is quite expensive and unaffordable at this point.

I just don't get the appeal here. You drive by, snap a picture, but this is not even close to the cutest house in town...

I guess I too now have my own pictures of the most photographed house in Maine. Worth seeing as it's very unique and very easy to get to. If you are into design and architecture you will enjoy it.

Bottom Line: If you are in the area its neat to see but don't go out of your way. Details: We planned to stop on our way to Walker's Point. We almost passed it as it isn't on a special lot or anything, just an ornate house on the block. My wife, who is usually very interested in this type... More
