We were driving by and stopped in to check it out. It was beautiful. If you have a summer wedding planned in the area this would be the perfect place to have it. The view from the outside was also very very nice.

What a beautiful old church on absolutely gorgeous grounds sitting right by the sea. My understanding is that the Bushes attend services there when in town.

Happened across Saint Ann's church which is not far from the center of Kennebunkport and right on the ocean. Lovely setting and the rock work is something to see. Definitely part of the history of the area.

The grounds are just gorgeous. Attending Sunday mass was so special to me, especially when 2 Secret Service cars drove in with a famous family.

The building is easy to miss, doesn’t even look like a church from the outside, but quite impressive interior. The music program (Mozart and Beethoven) lasts just over one hour, more serious work than the tourist traps, at very reasonable rate. Recommend highly for experience...More

There is parking and good views. The church is historic and beautiful. It is worth a brief stop as you drive Ocean Avenue.

Saint Ann's Church is a beautiful historic building. Beautiful stained glass windows and wonderful craftmanship. The outdoor area for services overlooking the ocean is wonderful.

We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and the historic church itself. Apparently, they sometimes have services outside, overlooking the water. It would be hard to concentrate on the speaker with such a beautiful setting!

I think you can still walk the outside grounds of the church during off season which would still be lovely.

It was built in 1887 and has been an operating church since 1892. The church construction is interesting as the stones used to make the church were pulled right from the Atlantic Ocean which it overlooks. Taylor Swift... More
