Visited Kennebunkport this weekend and couldn't leave without seeing Walker's Point. It was an honor to be able to view a property that has been host to many world leaders and well worth the visit.

Walker’s Point makes the stop at the Parson’s Way pull-off on Ocean Avenue a little more scenic than just plain ocean. One won’t get any close-up views of the Bush family, but that’s okay. Parson’s Way is a scenic walk on a rocky path directly...More
