Walker's Point juts out into the Atlantic Ocean as a picturesque place for the summer home of the 41st president of the United States, George H. W. Bush. The land has served as a family retreat for over a century, and a number of important world leaders have had meetings here, including Margaret Thatcher and Mikhail Gorbachev. The entrance is guarded by Secret Service officers, but the buildings are visible to passersby. Bring your camera along to take photos of the property; there are a few plaques and benches to see from the home's exterior.

Walker's Point reviews
The Bush compound. Most tend to want to see if you are in the area but you will not lose sleep if you miss it.

Great stop to pay tribute to 41 and 43. Got out on the rocks to see the waves crashing against the shore.

Pull over on the side of the road to grab a couple pictures as you head through Kennebunkport. What you can see is limited for privacy, but it’s still cool to see! I recommend reading up about the compound before going.
Can only view from a distance, but still cool to see the Bush mother ship.
