Visiting the childhood summer home of FDR was a highlight of the island. Very interesting to see the short historical film and tour the cottage (and its twelve bedrooms), complete with original furnishings.

Magnificent tribute to FDR and Eleanor! The Park has 2 of the Roosevelt's homes with original furnishings in many of the rooms. The grounds are meticulously maintained and leave one in awe of the tender loving care the site receives. Attended "Tea with Eleanor" in the Hubbard cottage where 2 women told the life story and contributions that Eleanor made... More

We enjoyed our tour of the Roosevelt cottage -- what a view! Even more, we enjoyed some of the trails at the park. The bog boardwalk was very interesting. The trail from Liberty Point to the Sunsweep sculpture was full of dramatic views.

Part of the charm of Campobello International Park is its lack of tourists. After spending 3 days at Bar Harbor, my wife and I were a little overwhelmed by the number of tourists, and even though we expected this in Maine in the summer, it was still a bit off putting. But Campobello has about 1/20 of the crowd -... More

Beautiful drive to Roosevelt Campobello and the grounds are lovely. The rose gardens were in bloom and everything is so well maintained. A tribute to FDR. Historical video previewed his life and the tour of the home had many of his treasures. Some were, of course, representative of the time and obtained from pictures of the house in earlier days....

My husband and I set aside a whole day to explore Campobello Island and the Roosevelt Park and Cottage. Nice weather made our visit all that much more enjoyable. We started out by getting to the Visitors Center at 9:30 AM in order to procure two free tickets for the 11 o'clock "Tea with Eleanor". This plan worked out well.... More

This set of buildings, which includes an interpretation centre, the Roosevelts' own summer house, two other comparable summer dwellings and spacious grounds, is well maintained and very interesting. There are guides everywhere; evidently the funding from the U.S. and Canadian governments is quite generous. It's a great place to learn about the FDR's and Eleanor's contributions to public life.

We visited the island for the purpose of seeing FDR's summer vacation home. We lucked out with our timing, being able to join a free tour that had not been advertised. Had we wandered around aimlessly I am not so sure the experience would have been as worthwhile. Several younger children (say, 7-9 years in age) were on our tour... More

This is a great side trip when visiting Maine. First of all, it is in a stunning location on the Bay of Fundy. Admission is free. I read the other reviews and they were right. Get there by opening time and snag a free ticket to Tea with Eleanor, it was the highlight of my visit and I will be... More
