When we got into town it was close to sundown. We'd hope to see George Bush's home, but there was really thick fog. We went back in the morning and it was beautiful. A caretaker of the church was there and told us that the Oakridge Boys had stopped on their way to perform for Bush. He also showed a... More

We arrived soon after Sunday services had concluded. The view of the Maine coast from the parking area is very calming. The church is built from stone. The inside of the church has the stone interior walls. The stone exterior and interior adds character to the building and making it unusual. Plenty of stained glass windows to view. The landscaping... More

We got to Saint Ann's on a Sunday just after the church service had ended. This is a beautiful church with many stained glass windows. We were able to go inside the church and take pictures. The area also allows you to take pictures of Kennebunkport just across the water. It's a very enjoyable place to watch the birds and... More

This church is a stunning stone building right off Ocean Avenue, with amazing views of the water. It's the church the Busch family attends when they're in town. Take 5 minutes to walk in, kneel down, light a candle, and count your blessings. You'll enjoy the peace as well as the view.

I am not much on checking out church's when I travel but this one is worth it! really distinctive and a million dollar view from the outside. Check out the sea shells in the stained glass.

When you're in KPort, don't miss visiting this lovely stone church and its absolutely beautiful grounds. The Bush family attends this church when staying at Walker's Point. They have generously donated in HW's mother's (Dorothy Walker Bush) memory to the upkeep. There is ample parking and the doors are wide open in good weather. The walls are made from beach... More

This beautiful little church is an oasis of peace just outside the busyness of Kennebunkport. We actually stopped there on two successive days because we had picked up the handbook on our way out the first time, and, having read that, we wanted to return. The church is a masterpiece of engineering, fashioned from rocks off the seashore. The ceiling... More
