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

You will love looking at this unique Beautiful home. Really. Yes, it needs repair. It is privately owned. We did not know that there were tours. After leaving Kennebunk village, very nice to see this unique, well know, wonderful, beautiful, this home.

Just such a quirky and one-off building. A real showstopper - which is a lot to stay in an area filled with lovely old buildings.

We found the home to be in some need of repair and a coat of paint on the outside. While we went there to take a picture of the home because we were in the area, we were promptly met at the gate by the owner, Jimmy Barker. He was very kind and offered to take us on a tour... More

There really isn't much to do here except stop, look, and take a picture. You can't go inside, but you can read the history in many of the local tourist publications. It's an interesting-looking house that, sadly, does need some sprucing up.

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
