It was the strange name "Wedding Cake House" listed in a tour guide that began our search. We found it, read the historic back story. It does kind of resemble a wedding cake - gaudy but it could pass. But it was only worth a drive-by for us. There were too many other places to see.

The house is beautiful, but sad to say that it doesn't appear to have been kept up over the years. It is absolutely darling! A great stop!

I drive by this place regularly. The owners are neglecting the up keep. It was more attractive years back. In the summer there are busses that stop for pictures and that's fine but I wouldn't pay to go inside.

The way reviews read, this is something you just have to see when you visit Kennebunkport. It's not much to look at and sadly is in great disrepair. It's more like a crumbly wedding cake with discolored icing :( But of course you can drive by if you're nearby. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it.

We thought our tour director was kidding when he told us the story of the Wedding Cake House, but then we saw it and found a postcard pix of it and knew it was real!

If you stop long enough a gentleman will come out and talk with you. Apparently his wife wanted this house built just the way it is today but it does need a coat of paint.

The homes on Summer Street were beautifully decorated for Halloween. The Wedding Cake House was unique and we took several photos.

The story of the Wedding Cake House and the unique structure make this a worth while stop if you are in the Kennebunk area.
