Lots of staff hailing from both the USA and Canada will answer all your questions. Everything is free, but there are several opportunities to donate. Watch the short orientation film in the visitor's center. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the island and reminisce about the cottage you summered in while growing up! This is where our longest-serving President was stricken... More

Of course the visit to the Roosevelt Cottage is the main attraction on Campobello Island but there is more to enjoy. We thoroughly enjoyed the Tea with Eleanor (tip: arrive just prior to opening if you want to score free tickets) and viewing the artifacts and furniture in the cottage. The gardens and surrounding scenery are lovely. We also walked... More

A wonderful visit to the only international park in the world! The guides here (evenly split between U.S. and Canadian staff) will guide you through the HISTORY OF THE Roosevelt family and their love for Campobello. The grounds are beautiful and the houses ("cottages") available for tour are gorgeous. "Tea with Eleanor" (an hour and a half with 2 charming... More

We arrived about 6-7PM so everything was closed but definitely worth a drive through to see Roosevelt cottage and imagine what it was like back in those days. Some great and beautiful hiking trails if you have time!

There are all kinds of things to see and do. Besides the cottages and the "Tea with Eleanor", there are exhibits of photos, a film and a wide range of nature trails to explore. There are no admission charges whatsoever! This may be the cleanest and best maintained park I have ever visited.

I have a moderate interest in FDR and thought this place was fabulous! I loved seeing the house with the period pieces. The coolest thing was the megaphone cone thing Eleanor used to call the kids to dinner. I need one of those! I did the short walking tour and I was glad I did. The guide, Betty-Jo had extensive...

We visited the island at 3pm with only 2 hours to do it, and thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour of the grounds and the Roosevelt cottage, and still had time to drive to the lighthouse and Friar's Rock observation site. The guides are fun and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend it.

Tea with Eleanor was excellent as previously discussed. Very interesting for history buffs, especially for those interested in Franklin. Island is also very interesting to drive around.

What a great place to take our two boys. A lot of history and fun as well. Croquet on the lawn just like when the owners where in residence and they rolled down the front hill just like I imagine many children have before them. Thanks for the memories.
