Obviously tourists are not allowed within maybe a mile. There's a pullover spot that limits parking to :15 only. This is a nice view of the property. Pictures are decent from the only spot available, which is an extra lane on a two lane road.

Always was curious as to the Kennebunkpot home the the Bushes so often talked about. And there it was! A full view right across an inlet. Its amazing. The drive right along the coast of Maine was amazing.

Park and walk. Ride your bike here. Plan a picnic (just not this time of year). Enjoy the sights of former president compound.

The area around Walkers Point which is home to the Bush family in summer is really pretty. There's a small parking area at the side of the road where you get a great view of the compound & some good photo opportunities.

I'm sure the Bush compound is amazing, but, to preserve their well deserved privacy, the secret service prevents tourists from getting close. An observation point from a pull off on Ocean Avenue across the bay is about as good as it gets.

Nice little stop on a scenic trip to Maine. Not a lot of parking but easy to find a space if there is not much traffic. We did a little research before hand and were excited to see all three flags up to know that...More

What a cool experience to see a Presidential Compound so up close and personal. It was great that we could see it well, take photos, etc.
