How To Extend Your Stay

In addition to the minimum stay, you can add consecutive nights to the start of your stay reserved in a single home at the lodging rate listed in your contract. Please confirm your stay extension no later than 30 days prior to your celebration.

For safety & sanitary reasons, swapping of guest rooms is not permitted between nights & all bed linens/towels need to be laundered professionally by our staff. Please plan your stay extensions accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.

How To Collect Lodging Payments

As would be anticipated with a vacation rental reservation, hosts set & collect a lodging rate for their guests to contribute toward the accommodations expense associated with their reservation of the estate. This can be based on the per person/weekend or per suite/weekend. As host, you decide what works best for you and your guests.If you are collecting lodging payments for your guests, the payment schedule in your current invoice with us is accurate.

If you wish to have French’s Point collect lodging payments directly from your guests, the due date for lodging is due 200 days prior to check in along with a $500 Administrative Fee. 230 days prior to check in, we would need to receive confirmation if you would like to proceed with this service and we will send you the Lodging Collection Form to complete to issue invoices to your guests.

Virtual Tours

The Beach House at French's Point offers lodging in eight suites for up to 18 guests

Retreat House, Farm House, & Beach House

Retreat House Suite 4
Please note that the Retreat House floor plans are accurate but we need to bring a glitch in the 3D virtual tour of suite 4 to your attention. Suite 4 is a two bedroom suite, which has one queen bed in each of the two adjoining bedrooms of the suite, and a shared adjoining bathroom. However, the 3D virtual tour has reverted to and old version from two years ago showing one bedroom with a queen bed and one bedroom with two sets of bunk beds, with the adjoining bath. Please refer to the floor plans for this suite and disregard the glitch in the virtual tour of this suite.

Farm House Suite 3

We have begun winter updates to the Farm House that we are excited to share. We have removed suite three in the middle of the house and are converting it to an open concept dining room with two twelve foot farm tables that can seat up to 28 guests. Additionally, we have opened this dining room to the kitchen and turned the old dining room into additional seating/living space in front of the fireplace. This will result in a greatly improved flow on the main level of the home. We still have 12 suites in the home because we converted the lower level recreation room into a suite with one queen bed, a full bath, and outside entrance, just as suite 3 once did. We will not be able to update the virtual tour until renovations are complete, so please refer to the updated floorplans when assigning rooms. Please note that suite numbers in the home have changed as a result, and this will not be updated in the 3D virtual tour of the home until the work is completed. We apologize for any confusion this may cause, but we expect that you will be pleased with the updates.

2021 Updates

Retreat House Cocktail Terrace Bars
We have new bars being built for the east end of the lower level cocktail terrace. They cannot be moved to the tent. We still have three white bar stations available in the tent as well Photos of the tent bars are attached, but we don’t yet have photos of the new terrace bars, but will send photos of them when they are complete. These bars can be removed from the terrace and stored by the catering kitchen entrance if you do not wish to use them. These bars will be white and in the same Adirondack style as the other patio furnishings in this space. We just wanted to advise you that they will be available at no charge in case you are finalizing your rental order and have considered including a bar for the cocktail terrace in your order.
Retreat House Cocktail Terrace Bistro Tables
We have four new bistro tables being built for the lower level terrace. They cannot be removed from the terrace but can be reconfigured within the space. Photos of the bistro tables will be available in the Spring when they are complete. These tables will be in the same white adirondack style as the rest of the furnishing in this space. They will be available at no charge.
