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

A beautiful place to stop and visit if your driving or walking. The grounds are beautiful as is the stone church inside and out. Fantastic views and very peaceful. Definitely a must see if your in the area. A beautiful spot to take pictures and just relax before moving on.

Did not go on grounds but drove by on Ocean Drive, as well as viewed from the water during our Lobster Boat tour on the Rugosa.

The most picturesque location and church imaginable, St. Ann's. This is the Walker-Bush family'd church to which they have graciously given much. This small, all stone and stained glass church on the sea is a must-see if you are in the area. There is even an oceanfront area for celebrations. A wonderful surprise as we toured Kennebunkport.

The church has been restored beautifully thanks to the generous support of the Bush family. There is a broad and beautiful view of the ocean from the grounds. Right on the edge of the ocean is a simple and beautifully peaceful outdoor chapel where those sitting in the pews look across the altar out over the sea. A very peaceful... More

This is a beautiful stone church with a wonderful view of the ocean. If you are in Kennebunkport, you should definitely visit it. It is also located just down the road from other attractions, such as the beach and many restaurants.

This is the best panoramic spot with fantastic sunset viewing. Also, the church itself is beautiful, made from locally picked ocean rocks. It is a treasure. Enjoy!

This sweet, stone church built in the 1800's is open for travelers during the day. A great stop on a walk around the Kennebunkport area.
