You can pull over and take some photos, other than that, there's not much to do but it's still very pretty. It's a private residence so there are no tours. It could use some TLC but it is still nice to look at and take photos. It photos nicely with the shade of the trees and the sun shining through.

We drove by this house on the way to a hardware store. It was a great photo op. Interested to read about it's history on Trip Advisor.

Quite a departure from the clapboard houses around the area. It's unusual and worth a slight detour to see.

We stayed next store at the Waldo Emerson house so just walked next store after breakfast. The architecture is amazing. There is some delayed maintenance but we're told an older man lives there alone. Definitely worth a drive by or stop. Got some wonderful pictures.

This huge home is the most Victorian house I've ever seen. You have to stop to take photos as it's virtually impossible to describe. It's easy to park along the road, and you can take all the photos you want. I can't even imagine how much work must go into painting this home! Hope this information helps you.

Without a doubt the most ornately designed victorian home we have ever seen..Built as a wedding present, the theme of love abounds, even down to the "X&O" patterned white fence out front! Look for it right on route one in Kennebunk and stop for a photo...and enjoy the delighful architectural details!

You can stop along Rt. 35 and take all the pics you want of this home that looks like a cake there are many stories as to why it is the way it is but there is a plaque across the street telling the story Check it out.

One of the gems of Summer Street mansions. If you're interested in local history a walking tour of Kennebunk is very well done. The wedding house requires a stop on the drive from downtown Kennbunk to the lower village and beach. Tour bus favorite.

I am not sure seeing this in person was much different than seeing it in pictures. If it is on your way, stop by but otherwise I am not sure we would go out of our way. Also, be on the lookout for it because it is easy to drive right by. It comes along by happenstance on the side... More

I am not sure why this is even on here. It may have been some sort of historical house but it's not worth seeing. The paint is peeling. This house is rotting away in front of your eyes. I know it's expensive to fix rotting boards and paint but please take this off a sight to see in kennebunk. Nothing... More
