Our Legacy

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 opened our estate to guests looking for vacation rentals on the ocean in Maine. 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 being enjoyed by generations to come. We are the go-to beach wedding venue in Maine for couples looking for one-of-a-kind celebrations.
