Since the 1800’s, families have journeyed to midcoast Maine to experience the unique natural wonder that can only be found here. These visitors known as “Rusticators” came to French’s Point seeking the tranquility and the restorative effects of the sound of waves lapping the shore and the intoxicating scent of beach roses and pine needles floating on the salty breeze. 90 years ago, our family settled here, taken with the unaltered beauty of this place. Today we steward the legacy of hosting private, milestone gatherings and wedding celebrations here on the shores of Penobscot Bay, allowing us the opportunity to share this wondrous gift with our guests while preserving this unique property and ensuring it will endure to be enjoyed by generations to come.
French’s Point offers 14 sprawling oceanfront acres bordered by 100 acres of State Preserve here on the beautiful coast of Maine, affording our visitors complete privacy and sanctuary from the whirling din of the outside world. Together the seaside estate house and the restored saltwater farm house offer beautiful lodging for up to 50 guests and a vast number of waterfront event spaces for intimate gatherings of 30 guests, to large celebrations of up to 200 guests.
Come together with loved ones for four days and three nights. Celebrate life’s sweetest moments, reconnect, share in unique experiences, and make memories that will last a lifetime, as you can only do when you are truly at home.
Create an event that reflects your vision by assembling your chosen team of providers and crafting an experience that will highlight the things that matter most to you.
