“Nice Stone Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is a nice stone church, but doesn't compare to some of the more elaborate cathedrals that I have seen. There is a nice outdoor seating area that has a beautiful view of the ocean. There are several markers relating to the Bush family. Very quiet and serene location.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

After a trolley tour in Kennebunkport we visited St. Ann's. It is a beautiful church and we enjoyed not only touring the stone church but also sitting at the outdoor Sanctuary. A beautiful way to spend a summer afternoon.

“Unexpected *GEM* - architectural beauty...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We were simple meandering in the car and caught a slight glimpse of this old church - not knowing exactly what it was.

We found a place to park.

Church was built in August 1887 with a one ton bell in bell tower. Gorgeous stained glass windows abound. It is the most beautiful old stone church I have seen since one in Scotland.

Outstanding views to the ocean. This is such a peaceful, serene location which inspires one's being.

A definite must see.

“A Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We walked over from The Colony at sundown and were mesmerized with the light and sheer beauty of the location. The Church was the bonus...and we found the outdoor sanctuary a particularly inspirational setting.

“Would love to get married herre!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stumbled on St Ann's while riding bikes from Kennebunkport to Cape Porpoise. It sits on a point at the entrance to the Kennebunk River and offers the most BEAUTIFUL panoramic ocean views I have ever seen in Maine and the church is very small but is an amazing stone building. If I weren't already married, I'd want the ceremony to be at the outdoor oceanside chapel area!
