Visiting the unique and beautiful Canadian/USA managed parkland, which includes the 'summer home' of Franklin D Roosevelt was a pleasure, especially being FREE. The friendly staff offered explanations of the home and surrounds, and then the "Tea with Eleanor" where maids served tea whilst explaining the life and passions of The Roosevelts, especially Eleanor, also FREE Driving the pretty carriage...

Went up for a day trip with a friend; it was neat to see how the first family lived! Once you gone once, you don't need to go back again. Pros: The grounds were beautiful, Good History, Couple nice hiking trails, Staff was nice. Cons: Staff were either too enthusiastic or did not care... Interpretation Programs were okay.

We liked the vast amount of history in the cottages. It helped making the Roosevelts alive. I disliked the overt propaganda.

2010 - - Step back in time to visit the vacation home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. When leaving Lubec Maine we took the bridge over to visit Campobello Island and the Roosevelt cottage and grounds. Be sure to stop at the information center to gather lots of history. Also visit the Mulholland Point Lighthouse and see the sea otter as... More

While visiting the Lubec area, we took a day trip to Campobello Island. The Roosevelt Cottage visitor center had an excellent film about FDR, his family and the cottage. Nice clean facilities too. The cottage grounds and flowerbeds are very well kept. The cottage tour was great. Since it was mid-September, the traffic was quite light. This enabled us to... More

We drove to Lubec, ME to stand at the most eastern part of the US. We enjoyed the lighthouse and park, but there was not much else to do there, so we drove to Campobello International Park. We were pleasantly surprised and glad we did. We walked the trails, toured the Roosevelt cottage, had tea with Eleanor, and saw the... More

The highlight of our trip was the "Tea with Eleanor" It was like sitting at tea with old friends listening to stories. The very in depth presentation was obviously a labor of love for the two lovely ladies who presented it and served the tea. A must for anyone visiting the park.

We very much enjoyed touring the Roosevelt home and the warm international feeling between well-trained Canadian docents and this important piece of 20th-Century American history. The coastal scenery is spectacular, and the whole experience of visiting Canada just across the U.S. border was wonderful.

Lots is written about the house and history, but if you're a nature buff, this is also a wonderful park. We drove down Glenserven Road, across from the main entrance. It's a windy dirt road bordered by grey birch, lovely and peaceful. At the end is Liberty Point, which looks across to West Quoddy Lighthouse. In the channel seals were... More

We loved this attraction. The Visitor Centre had two exhibits, one on the Roosevelts, and one on the friendly relationship between Canada and the U.S. Both were well done. There is also a short, introductory film that can be viewed in the Visitor Centre. The main attraction is the Roosevelt's summer cottage. It was a self-guided tour on the day... More
