Kennebunkport is the summer residence of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States. His compound is within walking distance of Wisteria Cottage. Summer in Kennebunkport includes beaches, shopping, fine dining and golfing. Winter transforms Kennebunkport into the number 2 United States destination for Christmas Prelude and the holidays. The town is reminiscent of a Currier and Ives Christmas season.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We love Kennebunkport and intended never to leave this house but life happens and we had to move to the south for my job.

Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
We love this house because we can hear the ocean waves at night and the fog horn in the distance. It is very quiet even in the busiest time of the summer, we have our own little slice of heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love being able to walk to the private 'neighbor's only' beach or take a stroll to Walker's Point. In the winter we love having a fireplace fire. The wisteria and rhodedendrums blooming in the spring are incredible to see. Two acres of land allows us to see the occasional deer or wild turkey from our windows. Dogs love the woods surrounding our home.
