I hadn’t been by in years but was playing tour guide on a girls weekend. It looks horrible. How can Kennebunk let it deteriorate like this- it’s a destination. So so sad

Every time I drive by this place, I'm reminded of the Spanish architect Gaudi because it's similar to some of his designs. And, it's 'gaudy', but fascinating to look at, and very creative. It could use some renovations, a fresh coat of paint, and so...More

We have seen pictures of the "Wedding Cake House" but they don't do the place justice. It is as interesting as it is unusual.
