In nearby Kennebunk, we’ll discover an impressive ensemble of historic homes including the celebrated “Wedding Cake House.” Built in 1825 by a prominent shipbuilder, its Gothic-inspired ornamentation does indeed give its otherwise simple Federal-style façade the appearance of a frosted cake. Before returning to ship, you’ll also tour the lovely English-style gardens and riverside woodlands of St. Anthony’s Franciscan Monastery Estate.  Meals B+L+D
