A remarkable step back in time walking through the Roosevelt's' fully restored private summer home. The history inside is palpable. Short pleasant drive from Lubec, ME. So, if you brought your passport, go the extra distance and visit this place.

So we drove up the entire coast of Maine and went to Campobello Island and then St Andrews,Canada as well. So - this was a long journey to say the least. We really wanted to check out Campobello....neither of us had either been there. We were so happy we made the trip and I have to say we would both... More

Unfortunately the FDR mome was closed for the season but the trip was stll well worth while. The visitor canter has lots of displays including photos of the times that FDR and his family visited. There are also extensive grounds to visit. There are two videos that give you a good sense of the life and times of the Island... More

This is an amazingly restored site that brings the Roosevelt years to life. One look from the porch tells in an instant why the family found this such an irresistible place. The guides are super-knowledgeable and provide invaluable imsights into the house and its famous residents. We went expecting to stay an hour and came out three hours later. For... More

We've visited Roosevelt Campobello International Park many times over many years. It is a main attraction in the Downeast area and a place we always show visitors. Finally, at the end of this season, we were able to experience Tea with Eleanor. It's a wonderful opportunity to relax, to enjoy tea and cookies, and to learn about the famous first... More

Large screened-in Kitchen Shelter with tables, running water, power and a wood stove. Clean, new and comfortable washrooms/showers. I was bicycle camping and the sites were large and private. The previous night I had spent at New River Beach Provincial Camp site and it was just as comfortable, I was following the coast. I was able to dry out my... More

We have been to Campobello Island many times, but never when this amazing park was open...we love this New Brunswick island in the off or early season. This September, however, we traveled here and were fortunate to find it open. What a gorgeous spot...breathtaking colorful flowers...sweeping grass, trees, and florals down to the sea...surrounded by pristine woodlands...all visible from the... More

this was a wonderful experience....well cared for beautiful place with wonderful grounds. The Roosevelt "cottage" is well worth a tour with the knowledgeable guides. The film at the beginning is a great help in getting to understand the place and the people who lived there.

Be sure to bring your passports. You go through security to enter into Canada. It is a lovely park and Roosevelt's cottage is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous and the museum display is very informative. When you enter the cottage you are met by very knowledgeable docents and they give you lots of information about the cottage and the... More

The house and grounds are almost immaculate. Very well cared for. The docents were very knowledgeable and signage and placards give a very detailed about the time FDR, Eleanor, and the family spent there. Try to get reservations to have "Tea with Eleanor". Very well done and informative. They only have room for 20 folks 2 times a day. Great... More
