Presidential Vacation Homes

Whether it’s “the Summer White House,” “the Winter White House,” a beach house or a fishing camp, presidents need to get away, too.

If a current or former president stays at a friend’s estate even for only one night, the visit bestows bragging rights to the place, and plaques can be ordered stating a president slept here.

Some houses have more than one well-traveled president’s name in their pedigree. A few of the following homes also have hosted other dignitaries, movie stars, and at least one of the mansions has appeared in several movies. Apparently, the presidential association is good for real estate prices, too. The prices of the following homes (with most images provided by Realtor.com) range from $1.675 million to $95 million.
