Walker’s Point

The Bush estate is located on Walker’s Point along Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport.

Laura Snyder Smith photo

The most common question we get at the Chamber is, “How do I get to Walker’s Point?” The summer home of President George H.W. Bush and the late Barbara, Walker’s Point has been visited by presidents, foreign heads of state and celebrities alike over the years. More importantly, though, it has been a haven for generations of Bush family members, who have enjoyed idyllic summer days away from the pressures of the outside world. Walker’s Point is not open to the public, but you can drive by or stop briefly at the scenic parking overlook to snap a quick picture. Vehicles may only stop in the designated parking area; stopping

on the road is not permitted.

Robert Dennis photo

To get to Walker’s Point, take Ocean Avenue from Dock Square, approximately two miles. The ride is beautiful in and of itself, with the Atlantic crashing against the rocks along the right side of the road. Just before you reach Walker’s Point you’ll see the special overlook spot (please obey the rules posted on the sign) on the right. Also overlooking the house and on the right is the Anchor to Windward, the town’s special tribute to “41” installed in 2009.

Launch Festival

Laura Snyder Smith photo

Named one of the “Top 10 Maine Summer Events of 2016” by Yankee Magazine in its first year, LAUNCH! A Maritime Festival is getting bigger and better in 2018. We are adding new events, such as Chalkfest and expanding others, such as the Pirate Pub Crawl. And the Kennebunkport Brewing Co., part of Shipyard Brewing Co., will return with their exclusive LAUNCH! beer, available on tap at Federal Jack’s and in growlers at KBC Shipyard Store. Fresh local seafood, nautical history and an array of activities at locations throughout Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and 10 | gokennebunks.com

Arundel will highlight our community’s rich maritime history. Events include a Castaway Cove for Kids with buoy decorating, touch tanks and bouncy houses; the Sailors & Sirens 5K, a fun beachside run complete with nautical costumes and live mermaids; a “Chopped”-style chef competition, whoopie pie cook-off in downtown Kennebunk; an authentic Lobster Bake with red-and-white checked tablecloths at the Pilot House, overlooking the water; and a VIP “Rock the Boat” adults-only shipboard after-party. Throughout the five-day festival, visitors

can also enjoy historic walking tours with costumed interpreters from the Brick Store Museum and White Columns, tours and tastings at the Kennebunkport Brewing Company and more. The highlight of the weekend is the River Lights Boat Parade on Saturday night, where boats bedecked in lights carrying costumed passengers and accompanied by fun music make their way down the Kennebunk River after dark, as hundreds of spectators cheer from shore. On Sunday morning, the festival will conclude with a traditional Blessing of the

Fleet in Cape Porpoise village, wishing captains and crew a safe and bountiful season. It will be an “all hands on deck” weekend with area hotels featuring nautically-themed packages, restaurants preparing their finest seafood delights and themed cocktails, and local shops showcasing unique and creative crafts and gifts. The Chamber of Commerce looks forward to helping visitors plan their stay this June to set sail on this fantastic voyage!

Local Beaches

With abundant sand and surf, Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunk is a popular spot on a summer day.

Alaina Tridente photo

Maine has more than 5,000 miles of coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire state can be found here in the Kennebunks. Whether you’re a family looking to set up for that perfectly relaxing day at the beach or a surfer hoping to catch the ultimate wave, the beaches in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport offer some of the best fun in the sun. Kennebunk Beach: Mother’s, Middle & Gooch’s (Beach Avenue) These long, wide sandy beaches (and even rocky Middle Beach) are the perfect place to walk, sun yourself, play in the surf, look for sea treasures or just enjoy the sight of the waves rolling into shore. There’s no better place to be on July 4, when fireworks explode overhead in a myriad of glittering lights. There are lifeguards and porta-potties at both Gooch’s Beach and Mother’s Beach from July through Labor Day. Mother’s Beach has a playground open to the public. While visitors are welcome at these beaches, a permit to park at the beach is required. Nonresident daily ($25), weekly ($100) and seasonal passes ($200) are easily available at the three parking kiosks and at the Kennebunk Town Hall. For more information, call the Kennebunk Town Hall at (207) 985-2102. 12 | gokennebunks.com


Local Beaches

Colony Beach on Kennebunkport’s Ocean Avenue offers free, but limited parking.

Robert Dennis photo

Parsons Beach (located off Route 9, Kennebunk) One of the area’s quieter beaches, Parsons Beach is also one of the Kennebunks’ most beautiful stretches of sand. A small rose-lined path leads to a mile-long beach perfect for walking, sunbathing and swimming. The Mousam River on the left empties into the sea and is also popular with fishermen. This private beach is open to the public, and a permit from Kennebunk Town Hall is required to park in its limited spots. Goose Rocks Beach (King’s Highway, off Route 9, north of Cape Porpoise) At three miles long, Goose Rocks Beach is a favorite with walkers as well as the sand pail set. It’s wide, smooth and sandy, and affords wonderful views of Eastern Goose Rocks and Timber Island, just off the coast. Parking permits are required ($15/$50/$100; note that Kennebunk permits cannot be used here) and are available at the Kennebunkport Police station, Town Hall and the Goose Rocks General Store. For information and prices, call the police station at (207) 967-2454. Colony Beach (off Ocean Avenue, near the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport) This beach (also known as Arundel Beach) is much appreciated by those who love to scramble on its rocks and watch the surf dash the shore. No permit is needed. Kennebunk • Kennebunkport • Arundel Chamber of Commerce | 13


Biking / Hiking Scenic coastal views, rural back roads and friendly motorists make cycling in the Kennebunks a must-do activity. The area is relatively flat and points of interest are easily accessible by bicycle. Whether you bring your own bike or rent from one of the local bike shops, take some time out to relax. Here are some beautiful rides, sure to please beginners and expert riders alike. Ocean Avenue and Cape Porpoise, Kennebunkport (8 miles): Definitely bring your camera on this ride. Head out of Dock Square on Ocean Avenue with the water on your right. You will be riding parallel to the Kennebunk River. Ocean Avenue is heavily traveled so families with young children may want to take another route. Bear right at the Wildes District Fire Station and stay on Wildes District Road all the way into Cape Porpoise. When you have had your fill of lobster, hop on your bike and backtrack your route into town. Goose Rocks Beach, Kennebunkport (11 miles): From Dock Square take North Street to Arundel Road. Follow Arundel Road past the horse farm and take a right on to Goose Rocks Road. Ride Goose Rocks Road to the end and go straight across Route 9. At the end of Dyke Road you will 14 | gokennebunks.com

find the pristine Goose Rocks Beach. This ideal family destination usually has very limited parking, but you won’t have that problem with a bike. This also happens to be the ride with the least amount of traffic. When it’s time to return, follow the same roads back to town. Kennebunk Beach, Kennebunk (7 miles): From Dock Square go over the bridge to the traffic light and take a left onto Beach Avenue. After a couple of minutes you will see the Franciscan Monastery. If you stop by for a scenic detour, please walk your bike when you enter; bike riding is not allowed in the Monastery grounds. Continue down toward the beach by taking a left onto Beach Avenue. Kennebunk Beach is now straight ahead about 1 mile. Follow the ocean for the next 2 miles. Where the road heads away from the ocean you will see Great Hill Road on the left. This deadend road borders the Mousam River. After you turn around, take a left onto Boothby Road. This connects to Route 9 and will bring you back into the Port. This ride is good for adults and parents with children over about 9 years old. Bridal Path, Kennebunk: Flat dirt path about two miles long that parallels the Mousam River and the marshes in Kennebunk. This is an excellent ride


Biking / Hiking for beginners and families. Park at Sea Road School on Sea Road for access. Franciscan Monastery, Kennebunk Pass through the stone gate of the Franciscan Monastery and you enter a gracious English park with it’s sweeping lawns, simple gardens, the maginficent Our Lady of Lourdes grotto, and other statues and shrines. Follow the paved path into the woods to see more statues and views of Kennebunkport across the Kennebunk River. Thousands come to enjoy these peaceful and expansive grounds every year. Everybody is most welcome to visit the chapel, to walk the grounds, or to sit in contemplation or prayer on one of the many benches on the grounds. All are welcome to visit the grounds most days between sunrise and sunset. Kennebunkport Conservation Trust, Gravelly Brook Road: Trails vary in length, width, topography and use. Some are conducive to bird watching and viewing wildlife, others for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. For information on this site as well as other Trust properties, see www.kporttrust.org.

Eastern Trail: The Eastern Trail, a 65-mile section of the East Coast Greenway stretching from Kittery to South Portland, has entrances in both Kennebunk (at Kennebunk Elementary School off Alewive Road) and Arundel (on Limerick Road). The trail is perfect for walking and cycling as well as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The trail, which is approximately 10 feet wide, is also dogfriendly. For information, as well as a map and trail rules, visit www. easterntrail.org. Kennebunk Land Trust: The Kennebunk Land Trust offers scenic spots for walking, hiking and riding. For routes and more details, visit www. kennebunk landtrust.org. Wonderbrook Park, Kennebunk Muddy, hilly, technical loops of interconnected trails. They are short but fun and include some bridge and log crossings. This is best combined with a road ride because of the short distance. Located at 16 Plummer Lane, off Summer Street.

Year-Round Appeal While thousands of people visit the Kennebunks in the summer, the region has something going on all year long. Autumn: Veteran leaf-peepers know there’s no better place to be in all the world than New England in the fall. Sunshine is bounteous and the days are still pleasant, but the views, oh the views! Imagine the flame-colored leaves – gold, scarlet and burnt orange – against the blue of the sky or ocean and you’ll Robert Dennis photos get the idea. The fall is also a great time to do some antique hunting, check out local fairs, yard sales and farmers markets and, of course, take a walk on the (less crowded) beach. Winter: Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice skating – these are just a few reasons to visit our region in the wintertime. Need a few more? How about cozy inns, restaurants serving up everything from comfort foods to haute cuisine, and plenty of pre-holiday shopping? Of course no discussion of winter in the Kennebunks would be complete without mentioning 16 | gokennebunks.com

the Kennebunkport Business Association’s Christmas Prelude. Now in its 37th year, Prelude features two weeks of magical holiday events (christmasprelude.com). And in February, we Paint the Town Red with a special Valentine’s theme and events. Spring: The flowers are bursting, the temps are warming up and the beaches are nearly empty – spring in the Kennebunks has great appeal for those seeking a quieter visit. Farmers markets are just setting up and offering the season’s freshest produce and treats, while garden centers are filled to the brim with plants and flowers. Summer: What can we say? People the world over travel to our region in the summer, whether it’s to spend some quality beach time, take in our history or maybe just a little shopping and dining out. You can go whale watching by day, eat a lobster on an outdoor deck by night, or simply pack a picnic and spend the entire day on the beach. Take in a play at the Ogunquit Playhouse, catch some live music at Vinegar Hill, or visit one of the area’s many historical offerings.


Favorite photo spots The Kennebunks is one of the most photographic communities in the world, and we are lucky to have so many talented local photographers who remind us of this with their striking images. Around every corner awaits the next best shot, which differs in every season, in the changing light of the day. So where can you find the best shot? We asked our local photogs. DOUG MERRIAM: Pier Road out to Bickford Island in Cape Porpoise. To me, the harbor still represents quaint Maine, with lobster boats moored in the harbor as you make your way out to the pier, and then Goat Island Lighthouse in the distance. HEIDI KIRN: My favorite photography spot is Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunk. It has so much variety, from the perfect expansive sandy beach at low tide, the views in both directions, a rocky jag at one end and a jetty at the other. And, of course, it’s a perfect place to catch the surfers all year round. MARINA DEMMONS: One of my favorite “secret” spots is a hidden trail on Franciscan Monastery property. It’s only a five-minute walk, but when you

reach the end of it, you are looking at the back side of Kennebunkport’s Dock Square, Kennebunkport Marina and Federal Jack’s. It’s just not your “usual” touristy Port side. When you catch it at the right time — low tide and sunset — it’s absolutely magical. It’s definitely a hidden treasure. C.A. SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY: Goose Rocks Beach at the intersection of New Biddeford Road and Kings Highway. The beach path there is always a favorite spot for portraits. ROBERT DENNIS: What’s great about the Kennebunks is that there are so many special spots, but if I had to pick one, it would have to be Cape Porpoise Pier. Looking straight ahead, we see beautiful and historic Goat Island Lighthouse. To the left is Trott Island, with a great view to watch the sun (or the full moon) rise. To the right is an array of lobster boats with Vaughn’s Island in the background. In the opposite direction, there are the rowboats and dinghies tethered to the pier, more lobster boats, fish shacks and beautiful homes along the shores of Cape Porpoise Cove, and a great view of the setting sun.

Nightlife The fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down! Whether it is a warm summer evening or a snowy winter night, the Kennebunks offer plenty of nightlife activities. Enjoy cocktails in Adirondack chairs or frozen drinks poolside, have great conversations around a glowing firepit, or challenge friends to a game of pool. In the Kennebunks there is something for everyone.

Whale Watching

Did you know that Kennebunk is the only town in York County to still offer whale watching boat trips? And that the First Chance Whale Watch and the new New England Eco Adventures are the only whale watching boats operating between Portsmouth, N.H., and Portland, Maine? Visitors are lucky to have the opportunity to climb aboard Nick’s Chance and travel offshore to the feeding grounds of finbacks, minkes,

humpbacks and even the rare blue whale or endangered right whale. Along the way, you might even see some dolphins at play, or other sea life as you take in vistas that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. New England Eco Adventures will be offering a three-hour sunset cruise this summer as well. For tour information, go to firstchancewhalewatch.com and newenglandecoadventures.com.

Life on the Water

There are plenty of ways to enjoy local rivers and the ocean.

Robert Dennis photo

The Kennebunks share a common seafaring heritage, and that love of life on the water continues today. While fishermen make daily use of the region’s piers, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the beautiful rivers and ocean in the area. Options include deep sea fishing tours, kayak and boat rentals, whale watching trips, lobster cruises, schooner rides and more. If surfing is more your speed, Gooch’s Beach in Kennebunk is a popular spot, and surf and paddleboard rentals (not to mention wetsuits – Maine water can be chilly!) can be found nearby.

Admire a lighthouse There are beautiful views of Goat Island Light from Cape Porpoise Pier, or you can see it closer up via boat on a New England Eco Adventures tour.

Food & Dining

While you can find something to suit all tastes here, food fresh from the sea is our specialty.

The Maine Lobster Council will tell you that the world’s best lobster comes from Maine. But it’s even better to enjoy that lobster when you’re eating it in Maine. Visiting the Kennebunks, you’ll have the opportunity to do just that, whether you enjoy it at a seaside lobster bake or in one of the area’s lobster pounds, casual eateries or fine restaurants. You can have your lobster any way you like it, in a roll, as part of a pasta dish or in fajitas, or in any of dozens of different preparations, or simply with a little drawn butter on the side. And if lobster isn’t your thing, or you’ve simply eaten your fill, the region boasts 26 | gokennebunks.com

numerous different cuisines including New American, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Spanish and French. It also features dining establishments dedicated to the farm-to-table movement, continental cuisine and pub fare. In fact, the Kennebunks boast dining options of all kinds, from a well-known take-out stand to a AAA Five-Diamond Award-winning restaurant, and everything in between.

Getting Married

Chris Becker Photo

What could be a more perfect backdrop for your wedding than the beautiful beaches and deep blue water of the Kennebunks? How about a stone church perched above crashing waves? Or an antique farmhouse overlooking the marsh? Or a turn-of-thecentury resort with a rolling green lawn?

Sunset kayak tour? Check. Sunrise breakfast on the beach? Check. Evening cocktail cruise? Check. Trolley tours? A plethora of shopping? Relaxing spas? Check, check and check.

All of these venues – and more – are available for those looking to exchange vows in Maine. In the last decade, the Kennebunks have become one of the country’s premier destination wedding locations, primarily because of the local beauty, but also because of the many activities your wedding party and guests can enjoy here. The destination is perfect and welcoming for all couples. 54 | gokennebunks.com

Getting Married

C.A. Smith Photography

In addition to a variety of wedding sites, your rehearsal dinner or other special occasion can be as formal as a sit-down dinner in one of the region’s fine restaurants, or as casual as a waterfront lobster bake by the shore or rustic barn event. C.A. Smith Photography The region is also rich in all of the services you’ll need for your special day, from photographers to caterers, hairdressers and florists to event planners, cake designers and videographers. Your guests can even travel to your wedding on a trolley, or via a golf cart limousine!

And what better place to honeymoon than here in the beautiful Kennebunks, with accommodations ranging from historic bed and breakfasts to antique vehicles? Ready to start planning an event? Call the Chamber or contact one of our members. Kennebunk • Kennebunkport • Arundel Chamber of Commerce | 55

Dock Square

Kennebunkport’s Dock Square is colorful no matter the season.

Kennebunk was also ranked Maine’s “safest city” in 2017, 2016 and 2015, according to Safe Choice Security, citing its low violent crime and property crime rates. Won’t you join us in living “the way life should be”?

History White Columns Kennebunkport The First Families Kennebunkport Museum, at White Columns in the heart of Kennebunkport, offers visitors a chance to tour an 1853 Greek Revival home and view exhibitions covering two centuries of local history, from sea captains to presidents. Guided tours present stories and artifacts from the lives of Charles and Celia Perkins, whose fortunes were connected to the thriving shipbuilding era of Kennebunkport. The museum also features sea captains and shipbuilders to rusticators to Kennebunkport’s most famous summer resident, former President George H.W. Bush and the late First Lady Barbara Bush and their family. There is also a Museum Store with a selection of maritime history collectibles, presidential memorabilia, and unique Kennebunkport treasures. — Kennebunkport Historical Society

Arundel history In the mid-1600s, Arundel’s first settlers kept close to the coastline both for easy access to the ocean and to escape from local Native Americans. The settlers finally abandoned the settlement in the late 1600s and did not return until around 1720 when relations with Native Americans improved. The new settlement, named Arundel, grew along the Kennebunk River. After 1750, people began to settle west of what is now Route 1 and started farming the rest of Arundel. Around 1800, as the religious climate changed, small churches and meeting houses served to draw the local people together. Although those small churches have disappeared, several of the early farms and a few of the farmhouses still exist today. When Arundel’s secession from Kennebunkport became official in 1916, it lost its direct connection with the coast and remained a rural town composed primarily of farms. Today, Arundel is one of the fastest-growing towns in the state, and is home to both industry and local businesses, while maintaining much of its rural character. — Arundel Historical Society

History Brick Store Museum, Kennebunk Brick Store Museum, Kennebunk: In 1936, in the middle of the Great Depression, Edith Cleaves Barry opened the Brick Store Museum on Main Street in Kennebunk. This town was recognized nationally for its shipbuilding prowess in the 19th century, and by the early 20th century it turned into a nationwide tourist and artist mecca. Though the town preserved its small-town charm, it consistently spearheaded trends on a national level. Edith Barry inherited a brick general store building, built in 1825, from her uncle, William Barry, in the early 1930s, and knew immediately that she would open a museum dedicated to the story of this area. When the Brick Store Museum opened in 1936, it became one of only 10 museums in the entire country to open between the Great Depression

and World War II. Edith Barry funded the museum with her own money and invested her time and hard work for the rest of her life. The Museum absorbed four other buildings on the block, all built between 1810 and 1860, to house its collection of over 70,000 artifacts relating to the culture of the Kennebunks. Today, the museum is open six days a week, offering exhibitions, tours, research and programs year-round. Admission is $7, $6 for seniors, $20 per family ($10 for Family Passes on weekends). For information, visit www.brickstoremuseum.org, or call (207) 985-4802.

Fransiscan Monastery, Kennebunk The Franciscan Monastery Estate was was purchased by Rogers family of Buffalo, N.Y., in 1900. The architectural firm of Green and Wicks was commissioned to build a “splendid house in the Tudor style.” Landscaping was arranged by the Frederick Law 108 | gokennebunks.com

Olmsted Brothers, designers of New York City’s Central Park, and Boston’s Emerald Necklace. In 1947, the estate was purchased by Franciscan Friars who had fled the Soviet Invasion of Lithuania. The home was converted to a monastery, adding the chapel, shrines and statues. Franciscan friars and clergy still live in the monastery, and all are welcome to visit the grounds most days between sunrise and sunset.


History

Robert Dennis photo

The Wedding Cake House, Kennebunk When James Hunt Barker first saw the Wedding Cake House, he was a young man just back from the Korean War. It was 1954, and Barker, a Kentucky native, had traveled to spend a week that August with artist Channing Hare. At a cocktail party given by Hare and attended by film actress Claudette Colbert, the artist talked about a house he had been trying to buy for five years. So the next day, Hare brought Colbert and Barker to that house.

Located in Kennebunk on the stately Summer Street, the building of the house started in 1815 and lasted 10 years. At that time, it was given to George Washington Bourne by his parents, as a wedding present. And it would come to be known as the Wedding Cake House. While Hare would never own the home, nearly 45 years later Barker bought it, and has it owned it ever since, becoming only the second owner not to be a part of the original Bourne family.
