One of the wonderful things about French’s Point Estate is that in addition to more traditional hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts, there is an extensive network of nearby houses and cottages available for rent. These local accommodations offer your guests the ability to turn their time in Maine into a vacation experience, affording more privacy and closer proximity to your events at French’s Point. The cottages and rental homes offer more amenities than traditional hotels such as kitchens, more living space, and private beaches.

This cute little beach cottage is located just next door to The Farm at French’s Point’s private beach area. It can comfortably accommodate up to 5 guests with a wonderful screened-in porch and cozy cottage interiors. It was restored recently and is another busy vacation rental cottage. The owner of this cottage also owns the cottage just next door, Driftwood Cottage. The property management company for these cottages On The Water In Maine, will not rent cottages they manage to wedding guests anywhere in Maine, as a company policy. Additionally, all cottages that they manage to run on a Saturday to Saturday rental schedule June through September, which cannot be adjusted. However, we have had a number of parents of our couples or couples themselves, rent these cottages for the two weeks around the wedding and make a vacation of their time in Maine. If you would like to rent these cottages, please contact the owner Diane Charney directly and do not reserve through the website.
