“Well, yes there it is...from afar”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

A house of a former president waaaaay out there on the point with ocean view. Felt a little silly going to stare at it. More gorgeous homes on the cliffs along the way. Did hear in interesting true story about the flower delivery lady who was greeted at the door by a very gracious George Bush. Kind of a 'touristy' thing to do if you care to.

“Great View from a distance”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

There is a small parking area where you are allowed to stop for up to 15 minutes. Great photo opportunity.

“Summer home of two former presidents!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

As above. Sumner home of two former presidents. What else is there to say? You can go almost right up to the gate. Amazing.

“Well you are here, might as well drop by”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Its a rather nice drive out the way, and a quick stop allows you to spy on the Bush's compound. It is all a fairly scenic view with sailboats or yachts passing by. I wouldn't devote to much time, but it is interesting to see. And hell if you get lucky the secret service and family can be seen walking or running in the area

“Texas Comes to Maine”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Being from the local area it is always fun to see the Texas flag flying at Walker's Point announcing our famous summer residents are at home. And what a great home and lovely setting they have. Nothing ostentatious, just an overgrown (and then some), natural siding cape. Well worth the drive-by due to the spectacular views along Ocean Avenue, and the beauty of Kennebunkport.
