So glad the house was still open, and we enjoyed the rest of the island with its lovely views. Free visit. Skipped the films at the Welcome Center--but the people were very helpful. Excellent, informative guides in the house. Nice wandering on the property. Restaurant lunch and drove to view the lighthouse. Must leave the US from Lubec and do... More

The cottage closed for the season on the day before we visited, but the visitors center has some great displays and there's a very informative film that they'll play for you. You can walk around the grounds and onto the porches and see inside the first floor rooms. We also walked around the yards and to the other cottages on... More

I enjoyed traveling about the park, but was too late to go into the house itself. Very good videos at the visitor center and informational displays.

We were surprised to learn that Roosevelt lived here without electricity, heat and telephones. As a result, he only stayed here one night as President. The Secret Service preferred to have him on a nearby yacht, with all of life's new-fangled necessities. The home has 18 rooms. Big and cottage-like, but not luxurious like the FDR home in Hyde Park,... More

For five years they have been offering a free (or small charge with reservation) Tea with Eleanor. It is tea, home made cookie in one of the cottages, and you are entertained by a knowledgeable ranger on Eleanor Roosevelt. Remember one hour ahead when you cross main to Canada on the tiny bridge or you will be late. Our ranger... More

This attraction was the main reason why my wife wanted to visit New Brunswick. We were disappointed to find out that as president, FDR only visited it a few times. I expected to see a lot of special features designed to accommodate his handicaps but since he did not go there that often, they did not exist. However, the drive... More

This is the second time we visited the park. It's a beautiful setting and the house conveys the sense of life in the period. FDR was an incredible person who championed for the common man. Elenor was no less impressive. It is a great place to bring children so that they can connect with our country's past. A special thanks... More

Decided to visit the Roosevelt Campobello home because I had previously visited the Hyde Park and Warm Springs homes and wanted to see this one as well. September was a perfect time to visit. The crowds were gone and the weather was lovely. The flowers leading to the house from the visitor center were still beautiful. The employees at the... More

We enjoyed the Roosevelt cottage Campobello International Park. Although it was at the very end of their season and they had reduced staff the experience was wonderful. We were surprised that the 18 bedrooms were so small. The grounds are absolutely stunning. Most of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

The main attraction is the Roosevelt summer home on Campobello Island. The house is not the one Franklin stayed at as a child, that one was torn down in the 1950's. The Kuhn's house is the one given to him when he was older and it is furnished as it would have looked when Franklin and Eleanor would have had... More
