Almost every visitor to French’s Point remarks that “There is so much more here than I expected!” and “The website is great but it just doesn’t capture all that is here!” We have some beautiful photos on our Gallery page to help acquaint you with our special waterfront event venue, thanks to the work of our incredibly hard-working photographer friends. We also have some breathtaking videos on the Video page to help you get a sense of our immense seaside estate on Penobscot Bay here in Midcoast Maine. And now we have a great new map graphic that also highlights some of the wonderful features that make our venue so special for gatherings, weddings, and family time.
Ocean, Ocean, and More Ocean
You can see the ocean borders the property on three sides, which makes for stunning panoramic views of the bay from both of our buildings.
On the East side of The Farm spread, we have a beautiful private beach area with a massive stone bonfire pit right on the shore; two tree-swings overlooking the cove, perfect for relaxing swinging; and a wonderful East side terrace with a cozy fire pit. At the top of the hill sits The Farmhouse with incredible views all around. The house has 12 guest rooms with en suite bathrooms, a fully appointed kitchen, a fireplace parlor, and a lower level recreation room. Behind the farmhouse out the parlor sliding doors is the BBQ lawn with picnic tables and grills, perfect for an afternoon cookout. Behind the BBQ lawn is the Westside terrace with a gas fire pit and beautiful sunset views overlooking the orchard, garden, gazebo, the recreation lawn with croquet, horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, bocce ball, corn hole, and new for 2018, giant Jenga! Beyond this rec lawn is 106 acres of wooded Sandy Point State Park preserve with 1 ½ mile of walking trails.
“There is so much more here than I expected!”
At the tip of the peninsula, The Retreat House sits with a commanding 280-degree view of the bay. The beautifully landscaped gardens punctuate the views and gathering areas like the cobblestone terrace, the ceremony gazebo and promenade and the oceanfront lawn. The Family Tree Garden offers some of the best photo opportunities on the property, particularly at sunset. Below the Family Tree is our gorgeous custom sailcloth tent structure on a full floor set along the edge of the bluff. The beach path leads to the gorgeous oak trees that lead to the shore and stunning sunset views.
This property was made for relaxing days spent with loved ones making memories that will last a lifetime and fill your heart. Come explore the estate for yourself and let us know what you think. Contact us for a private tour of our estate.
