Venue Setting

French’s Point Estate is a historic, coastal estate located on the tip of a private peninsula in Maine’s Penobscot Bay. The beauty of our expansive grounds is surpassed only by that of our 260 degree view of Maine’s rocky coastline. Our beautifully manicured grounds and pristinely restored historic estate coupled with our breathtaking coastal views make us the quintessential Maine venue for elegant coastal weddings. Committed to the quality of our couple’s experience, we host only one event at a time so that we may offer our guests the entire estate for their special day. While on the estate, guests can enjoy our myriad outdoor attractions and hidden treasures, such as coastal walking paths, rows of Adirondack chairs overlooking the ocean, secluded rope swings, and a firepit perfect for crafting delicious smores. Guests can also enjoy the luxurious amenities of our multi-story estate house, which boasts a full-service draft bar, wood-paneled ballroom and granite-tiled bathrooms.

This wedding was more than just a dinner party, it was a whole weekend of revelry, wine-ing and dining with friends and family from near and far. The awesome celebration took place at French’s Point in Maine’s Penobscot Bay, an old historic estate with incredible views of the coast and plenty of sleeping spots for a big crowd of loved ones.

With lots of manicured gardens and coastline vantage points, there’s no shortage of indoor and outdoor venue options on the grounds at this gorgeous Maine wedding venue. It's just the right size to do a buyout and sleep all of your wedding guests on property in cozy, private digs. Plus, it comes with a sailcloth tent on-site, which is a major win.
