“Former President Bush's Maine Summer Retreat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

A few small turnouts afford limited glimpses of the former President's family summer retreat. It's worth seeing if one is already in the area, but don't be surprised if there's nowhere to park. A good zoom lens is indispensable if you feel compelled to photograph it. Binoculars work just as well. Be alert for distracted pedestrians vying for a better look. The property's unobstructed ocean view is enviable; yet, other than being able to say one has seen it firsthand, there's nothing all that remarkable about what one can see here.

“President Bush's house”

Although you really aren't allowed down on to the property it is a beautiful view from the little point next door.

“Worth a drive-by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Having heard so much about the Bush family and their Kennebunkport retreat, it was cool to actually see it in person. It is much more impressive than I thought it would be. You can only drive by from the street but it is worth the detour.

Loved the view and seeing where the Bushes spend some of their time. Seen it on tv but glad I got to see it in person

“What a nice stop along the way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

While taking vacation up the eastern coast we decided to include the Bush summer residence as a drive by. What a beatiful place the Bush's have, if i was traveling and close to this i would make it a must stop. We will visit again in the future and spend a couple of days at Kennebunkport as it seamed like a neat town
