“Interesting that this is an attraction”
Review of Wedding Cake House

Owner description: Elaborately styled 19th-century house at Kennebunkport Landing.
Reviewed 25 September 2013

This is a home that is styled with a bunch of gingerbread stuff that blew up all over the home. Interesting that is looks kinda like a wedding cake and interesting that it shows up as an attraction. We drove by it, saw it, but did not have the need to take a picture of it. Fun for a small town though.

If unique homes in poor states of decline are your thing, by all means stop by and snap a picture. There is no real historical perspective gained by driving by. My first reaction was, "this may be the ugliest house I have ever seen". My second was, "the owner needs to step up his maintenance program.

That's about it. Cute house. Would have been nice to go inside like others had the experience but Jimmy wasn't walking his dogs. We were just driving by and I recognized it and told my husband to stop.

Like many reviews have stated this house is not open for inside tours... Unless you happen to meet the owner, Jimmie Barker, walking his dogs outside. This Is exactly what happen to us. Jimmie is a very interesting gentleman who gave us about an hour tour of the 1st floor and the carriage house, ending in the garage with his 1955 Bentley. So if you do go by the house and see a gentleman walking his dogs say hello.

Only viewed from outside. Pretty and quite lovely. Nice to see. A large home with details resembling a " wedding cake".
