French’s Point is for couples that are seeking a private, beautifully-relaxed weekend seaside retreat, that feels like a vacation & reunion, with a wedding at the heart of it all... an experience that is authentic to them, crafted by their chosen team of vendors.


My husband and I got married here in July, and could not be more thankful we chose French’s Point. From the very beginning to end, the owners and staff were exceptionally professional, organized, and available for suggestions, questions, and concerns.

Thank you for an unforgettable experience! We wanted a unique and magical wedding weekend, ant that was certainly achieved at French’s Point. We will never forget all you gave us.

Mackenzie & Nicholas

We had our daughter’s wedding at French’s Point in July 2017 but started our relationship with the French’s Point staff long before. For the months leading up to the big day, we received excellent resources and assistance from the French’s Point staff.

We offer our entire estate by the weekend, to couples that wish to host an intimate celebration. Our standard reservation is based on events as small as 30 guests and as large as 100 guests. The combination of a smaller guest count, coupled with a celebration that takes place over a long weekend, affords you more time to reconnect with your friends and family, and less overall stress as part of the experience. The outcome of a weekend wedding celebration at French’s Point is a profound, milestone experience you will cherish for a lifetime.

Our couples prioritize privacy, comfort & customization, and understand that these elements while assured at our private estate, are not often provided at alternative resort-style venues. They want to share a piece of New England that holds a special place in their heart, with their family and friends.

To give you ultimate control over the experience & your budget, you have the opportunity to partner with your chosen team of professionals, to include planner, caterer & bar service provider, from our Preferred Vendor Guide, to craft a weekend celebration that suits your values & your vision.

Since the 1800s, families have journeyed to Mid-Coast Maine, seeking the tranquility & the restorative effects of the sound of waves lapping the shore & the intoxicating scent of beach roses & pine needles floating on the salty breeze. Over 100 years ago, our family settled here, taken with the unaltered beauty of this place.

Today, we offer the estate as a vacation and event rental, to guests. We steward the legacy of hosting private milestone gatherings & wedding celebrations here along the shore of Penobscot Bay. This allows us the opportunity to share this wondrous gift with our guests, while preserving this unique property & ensuring it will endure being enjoyed by generations to come.

The estate is located in the Mid-Coast Maine, which offers easy access to additional lodging in a variety of styles, to include vacation homes within walking distance of the estate, that can sleep 60-80 additional guests & nightly lodging properties within 5-20 minutes, at a variety of price points & styles. The area also provides access to restaurants, shops, & galleries, limitless points of interest & attractions for guests to explore during their time at the estate.
