This historic stone chapel was built in 1887 and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. It's a Kennebunkport staple that's lauded for its stone facade, its stained-glass windows and its surrounding gardens. The church is also popular for wedding ceremonies. Recent visitors said the grounds are peaceful, the structure is unique and the colorful stained-glass windows inside are beautiful. Many say you don't have to spend much time here, but it's a quick "must-see" spot.

The church is located less than 2 miles south of Dock Square. Sunday services are available, though times vary depending on the season. The grounds and chapel are open to the public from sunrise to sunset in the summer through the early fall. For additional information, visit St. Ann's website.
