Website link for informational purposes only, DO NOT reserve or inquire through On The Water In Maine.

This cozy beach cottage is only a few doors down from French’s Point Estate and Beach Rose Farm. It can comfortably accommodate up to four guests. It was charmingly restored recently and is a busy little vacation rental cottage. The owner of this cottage also owns the cottage just next door, Compass Rose Cottage.  The property management company for these cottages, On The Water In Maine, will not rent cottages they own to wedding guests anywhere in Maine, as a company policy. Additionally, all cottages that they manage 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.

The Farm at French’s Point is owned and operated by the Brooks family which owns French’s Point Estate. Guests tell us often that The Farm is part of what made the wedding weekend experience here so special. The Farm is the oldest wooden structure in Waldo county. It has a rich history and was lovingly restored by our family in 2002. In 2003, The Farm became one of the largest vacation rental properties in the State of Maine. It offers lodging for up to 28 guests in 13 bedrooms, all under one roof.

The Farm at French’s Point offers a hybrid of amenities found in an inn and vacation rental. Each of the 13 bedrooms has its own private en-suite bathroom, towels, bedlinens and a TV. Rooms also have amenities like a fireplace, balcony, waterview or private entrance. The house has a gourmet eat-in kitchen and cozy lounge area. Eight acres surround the home and include organic orchards and vegetable gardens, private beach, bonfire pit, BBQ patio with picnic tables, east view terrace and fire pit, west-side terrace, recreation lawn with croquet, horse shoes, badminton, volleyball, and bocce ball. There is a private entrance to the 100+ acre Sandy Point Beach and the walking trail system starts in our “back forty.”

The Farm is offered to one group at a time as a vacation rental, affording complete privacy to you and your guests. It is the perfect place to bring family and friends together for a week or weekend to relax and reconnect in the time between your events at French’s Point Estate.
