We welcome you to select your own team of vendors for your events.

To aid in assigning rooms to your guests and making the arrival process for your family as simple as possible, we have created floor plans & virtual tours of each home at French’s Point. Each home has it’s own page on our website that includes a list of amenities, images, floor plans & virtual tours. Start off by viewing The Retreat House below!
As you generate your guest list for your celebration, you can start assigning rooms to your nearest & dearest friends and family. This room assignment sheet will need to be filled out by the hosts of the celebration and emailed to the office no later than 2 weeks prior to your celebration. Once received by the office, room assignments will be printed in this format and hung in the entryway of each home in a frame. First names of your guests will be written on chalkboard signs and hung on the suite doors within each home for an easy self-checkin!
As would be anticipated with a vacation rental reservation, hosts set & collect a lodging rate for their guests to contribute toward the expense of the accommodation associated with their reservation of the estate. This can be based on the per person/weekend or per suite/weekend. As a host, you decide what works best for you and your guests. If you are collecting lodging payments for your guests, the payment schedule in your current invoice with us is accurate.
If you wish to have French’s Point collect lodging payments directly from your guests, the due date for lodging is due 200 days prior to check-in along with a $1,500 Administrative Fee. 230 days prior to check-in, we would need to receive confirmation if you would like to proceed with this service and we will send you the Lodging Collection Form to complete to issue invoices to your guests.
As you dive into planning your weekend events and start generating your rental order with the aid of your planner, we want to remind you of a few basic items you will need to add to your rental order:
Tent Heaters (May, June, September & October)
Patio Heaters (May, June, September & October)
Below is the complete list of Tables, Chairs & Bars provided by French’s Point as part of your reservation, and where this inventory is stored & available for use.
Because French’s Point is a vacation rental estate, we supply you with a list of items we supply by home and items we suggest you pack for your stay. This packing list will help maximize the enjoyment of your stay.
You are welcome to rent golf carts for the duration of your stay through Goudreau & Sons Golf Carts, LLC. If you do so, please inform us & schedule their delivery & pickup times during your rental term.
For your safety, we ask that golf carts be driven only on established gravel pathways, only by non-drinking guests & remain at low speeds at all times. Please do not drive during quiet hours. We reserve the right to take ownership of the keys if we see necessary.
