“My wife and I got married at French’s Point in May and we could not have chosen a better wedding venue. Our wedding guests continue to compliment us on how amazing the venue was and all that it offered to our guests.
It is a place that evokes emotion in its guests because of the beauty of the Retreat House and Farm House properties, the size of the grounds with amazing landscaping throughout, and the incredible views it offers looking over Penobscot Bay. The property itself also has a rich and interesting history that is worth asking about during a visit. French’s Point is a fun place to create memories with family and friends, but uniquely so with miles of walking/running trails, which all of my groomsmen and I took advantage of, a large beach-side fire pit, multiple indoor fireplaces in each home, spacious outdoor terraces, and indoor recreation/lounge rooms for games and activities. The feeling of the property invites you to relax and enjoy yourself, your family, and your friends, even when wedding plans require your attention.
Possibly, what I enjoyed most about French’s Point, besides getting married, was how relaxed and peaceful I felt amongst all of the busy wedding weekend festivities. Part of this was due to the homey feeling of the property itself. Part of it was also due to the peace of mind that comes with the amenities of the homes that can provide excellent backup plans in case of unforeseen circumstances. The most obvious reason for the incredible weekend was because of the owner, Jessika Brewer. Jessika is so accommodating, friendly, and professional. She will go out of her way to make sure that your weekend is successful, memorable, and that you feel like family when you walk in the door.
Jessika is someone very special in the hearts of my wife and I. Just to further emphasize how wonderful Jessika and French’s Point are, my wife and I moved halfway across the country so that my wife could be part of the team at French’s Point as the manager of the property. We wouldn’t have done so if we didn’t believe in the value of French’s Point as a wedding venue or if we thought Jessika had anything less than a heart of gold.
Thank you for the unforgettable memories and the opportunity to experience our wedding at a venue second to none.”
