overnight trip Paris to Mont St. Michel

I will be in Paris at the end of June and would like to take an overnight trip to Mont St. Michel. I want to experience MSM in the evening and early morning after the day tripping crowds have departed. Has anyone recently traveled by train to MSM from Paris? It looks like there is train service into Pontorson and then a connecting bus that goes to MSM. The other alternative is the TGV to Rennes and then bus service from there. The TGV is obviously faster train service, however, it requires a longer bus ride to get from Rennes to MSM. Any suggestions or ideas?? Thanks in advance!

Lori.. we are currently planning our trip to Paris, as a side trip to MSM, we plan to take the train from Paris to Rennes, rent a car for two days. We'll drive to MSM, stay the night in or around MSM (having a rental car makes to easy to sightsee) and second day drive around the area sightseeing, spend the night in a B&B, return the rental at train station then head back to Paris. The problems we want to avoid is: (1) bus traveling w/bags (2) crowds of tourist. Hope this helps...
