“Feeling close to history”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

No matter what your politics you can't help but feel at least a little impressed knowing that you are close to a former president. There are good views of the house from the road (you can't get too close but you can get an unobstructed view). The area of Ocean Ave near Walker point is a nice place to sit and watch the ocean.

“Beautiful view of a famous landmark!!! Worth the short drive to see”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Just an impressive place on a nice ocean point.
the history of this home is amazing. read up on it via Wikipedia before viewing.
just a short 2-3 min from the center of Kennebunkport.
regardless of your politics... we've had 2 presidents here.. and it's a beautiful place.
take the time to swing out.. take a couple pictures.. and head on your trip!

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Our second time in Kennebunkport and still get a thrill out of seeing the American Flag flying over the Bush Compound and knowing that President Bush and his wife are on the site and possibly George W and his wife and Jeb and family also are there.
Last year this time, while we were here, they all were there when the namesake naval vessel stopped by to say Hi.

The location is awesome and inspiring even for someone who didn't vote for him. You just want to drive up to the gate and hello but of course that's not possible but from Trip Advisor we do say Hello and thanks to the entire family for their service to our Country. They deserve the spectacular location, home and views. Wish we saw you at Mabel's.

“Interesting”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We rode bikes around the 3+ mile circle area along the beach and old large houses. Walker's Point is where the Bush family house is, seen at a distance, but glad we saw it.
