Drove out to Walker's Point. Easy parking available along the road. My husband and I explained to our 2 grandchildren that the cluster of homes in the "compound" belonged to the Bush family and that the one on the end was for George and Barbara Bush. The secret service has the home furthest away. They were very interested. The homes... More

Beautiful walk to Walkers Point from Dock Square. Only a photo stop as you cannot go onto the grounds (to my knowledge) however the walk along the water is beautiful and relaxing. Definitely a great selfie spot!

The pull-off for gawking tourists on Ocean Avenue is as close as you can get to seeing Walker's Point, the compound of President & Mrs. Bush. It is definitely worth the trip to see what we all have heard about for years.

Everyone around Kennebunkport wants to see this place and we have seen much activity arounnd this place in past years. Was quiet this year when we went by. But a lovely Point that I sure would enjoy if they ever need a landlord!

Recommend you rent a bike in Kennebunkport and ride out Ocean Ave Stop at St Ann's Church. Have a meal or snack on the porch of the Colony and ride on to Walkers Point. Best month for Bush viewing is July. A car also works but don't spend a lot of money on a tour.

Kennebunkport and the Bush Compound are a must for many of our visitors. The drive out is beautiful (and so are the homes!) There is usually always parking available to stop and snap a couple of pics. The ocean is so beautiful here I can understand why they chose it for their summer home! I have been here a dozen...

Friends from out of town were interested in the Maine Coast. Besides the magnificent ocean, the presence of the Bush Compound lends a historical perspective.

Visited Kennebunkport this weekend and couldn't leave without seeing Walker's Point. It was an honor to be able to view a property that has been host to many world leaders and well worth the visit.

Worth the drive out of Kennebunkport to see this beautiful stretch of coastline....and the bonus of seeing the home of the Bush family...at a distance.
