Breathtaking view of the Bush summer home along Maine ‘s rocky coast. Parking along the roadway can be difficult. Walking along Ocean Ave is highly recommended but be careful with young children.

Yes, take a moment to make the drive to a designated parking area to see the H W Bush summer home......a makeshift memorial for Barbara is also at the parking area...... You can't see much, but " if your in the area" .

Such a beautiful area. Maine has the most beautiful rocky coastline. A little sad seeing the Bush Estate knowing Barbara has passed. There was a tribute building with flowers, stinea and pearls. This area is a must see if you visit Kennebunkport

We were in Kennebunkport on a Fall Color Tour on a cruise ship. Among other places, we were at Walker's Point. It certainly has a beautiful view for our former President and his family!

The Summer Home of George Herbert Walker Bush, 93, has been in his family since it was built in 1902. He & Barbara are held dear by the 3,000 residents of Kennebunkport, where they spend May-October of every year. Set on a promontory that juts...More

Although you can't tour it, you can see the property from the shore and it is very interesting. It is also a very scenic spot all to itself so it is a great stop. We didn't take a tour, we just drove there ourselves, but...More
