FDR was one of the world's great leaders and this international effort to remember him is a beautifully maintained, wonderfully staffed and totally fitting memorial to him and his historic efforts. My wife and I visited the Roosevelt Cottage at Campobello in early September. The park was not crowded and we had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful preservation,... More

Good informative film and guided tour of the grounds. Fantastic flowers and upkeep of the grounds. A little off the beaten path but worth the effort.

Campobello Island and its Roosevelt Campobello International Park Park are indescribably beautiful and inspiring. The Canadian island, just over a short bridge from Lubec Maine, is breathtaking. Visitors can experience the Fundy tides and fog, rocky cliffs, bogs, lighthouses, amazing scenic vistas, lobsters and, above all, wonderful people. The Roosevelt Park, jointly managed by Parks Canada and the US National... More

The Tea with Eleanor event is not to be missed. You will find out a lot of information about this wonderful woman and human rights champion.

The staff at the cottage was so pleasant and informative. The grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed the movie. The staff pointed out driving trails, but they weren't driving trails at all. I'm guessing they haven't toured the grounds. Other than the lighthouse, there wasn't much to see on the island. Personally I was disappointed with my visit to the Island... More

In visiting Campobello, we had the pleasure of "having tea with Eleanor". Please don't miss it if you have an opportunity to go there. Upon arrival at Campobello, the beautiful and well worth taking the time to see it summer home of FDR, we were asked by the staff if we would also like to stay and have tea. I... More

It was great to relive a bit of history. The view from the living room was spectacular. The ground are well kept and loaded with flowers. We enjoyed the movie first.

I tripled my knowledge of both FDR and Eleanor today as I visited Campobello Island. What a wonderful couple hours we spent. Lot's of history to see and the great part is that nearly everything in the Roosevelt Cottage was owned by the Roosevelt family. It gives you a good sense of how they lived, better than any other historic... More

Enjoyed very much the guided tour (free!) of FDR's home and the adjacent properties. Many of the guides were from the U.S. as were most of the license plates in the parking lot. Obvious sense of pride in having the Canadian connection to FDR.

The visitor center staff were friendly, engaging, and informative; they set the tempo for this wonderful visit. The guides in the home and cottage were knowledgable and patient with everyone's questions. The grounds are beautifully kept. Stroll to the beach and admire the shore as well.
