Review of Wedding Cake House

Owner description: Elaborately styled 19th-century house at Kennebunkport Landing.
Reviewed 17 October 2017

Peeling paint and some rotting wood aside, you can't help but admire the beauty of this once grand old dame!! Worth a quick stop as it is only a couple miles from the center of Kennebunkport.
We stopped and as chance would have it, met the owner (a 90+ year old gentleman who was walking his 3 dogs on the front lawn). A delightful fellow with lots of humor and class!

We could only view from the road but it made us stop to photograph and discuss! The setting beside the highway is not adequate for this grand folly!

We always drive by this house when we are in Kennebunkport. I have never seen anything quite like it and it has an interesting history. It is worth the drive to see it.

The architecture indicates that this house may once have been lovely, but it has fallen into grievous disrepair. You may well pass it just driving around, but I would not recommend a detour to see it.
