We can think of no better way to enjoy Maine than to stay at French’s Point in elegantly appointed rooms just steps from where you’ll exchange vows. With the ability to accommodate dozens of overnight guests, French’s Point offers a unique opportunity to gather friends and family on our private grounds along Penobscot Bay.
For up to 30 friends and family, we also offer the historic Beach Rose Farm House, located next to the Estate. Beach Rose is the oldest wooden structure in Waldo County, built by Col. Benjamin Shute in 1764, and we’ve carefully restored it to its original elegance, which includes shining wide plank floors, dramatic hand-made ceiling beams, and five fireplaces.
Beach Rose sits on eight and a half acres along Penobscot Bay that are perfect for lounging with loved ones. The property includes gas and charcoal grills, gas lobster boiler, and six 12-foot long picnic tables. Sip cocktails on the west-facing cobblestone terrace overlooking the Beach Rose blueberry fields and fruit orchard, lounge beside the fire pit on the east-view terrace, or saunter down to the property’s private sandy beach.
Besides the Estate and the Farm, a handful of small cottages within walking distance are also available for rent.
Our comfortable on-site accommodations are a hit among our former clients, who often say one of their favorite parts of their wedding was the chance to stay close to their most beloved guests. So when you choose French’s Point, we hope you also take advantage of our unique home-away-from-home accommodations.
