We drove by this house because of the high ratings on TripAdvisor...wow, what a mistake. It has clearly been neglected for quite some time, and although it is unique, it is really nothing but an eyesore - we actually thought we were in the wrong...More

An unusual spot in Kennebunkport. Certainly worth a visit while there. Pictures do not do it justice.

Located right in downtown Kennebunkport, We were there for a limited period of time so only had an opportunity to view it from the outside.

The house is in a sad state. The beautiful work is falling apart, sagging and will soon fall down. Not worth driving by. I didn't take pictures it was in such a sad state.

If you're in the area, make sure you drive by. This is an adorable house...though it needs a paint job.

You must check out this house-it truly lives up to its name. The yellow paint is reminiscent of lemon icing on a cake and the white trim the cake's decorations. It's high Victorian gingerbread at its best. Get a photo!

The house/structure is truly unusual with all its over the top gingerbread wood work. The building is striking if not appealing to the eye. The eye is so busy trying to take all the design elements in that it is really hard to appreciate the...More
