Just returned from visiting the Roosevelt summer cottage, the Hubbard cottage and doing Tea with Eleanor at the Wells-Shober cottage...all very impressive and inspiring. The women who share Eleanor's life are so well versed and inspired themselves that you come away feeling you had actually met her. Also exceptional because it is an international site with both American and Canadian... More

It is heartwarming to see two countries working together and actually producing an excellent result. Roosevelt Campobello International Park is meticulously maintained by the joint effort of the United States and Canada. Admission and our activities were free but would have been well worth it if there had been a fee. The grounds and buildings are extremely well maintained. FDR's... More

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the park. We visited about 15 years ago, and in contrast to some places of interest that become neglected, this one has improved. It is clean, beautifully landscaped, and informative and interesting. It is obvious that MUCH THOUGHT has gone into the planning. Admission is free, but we made a donation in the small... More

This place is beautiful and so well kept. The guides are exceptional and so friendly. Enjoyed "tea with Elinor" and the hostesses are outstanding and so knowledgeable. Perfect. The carriage trails are dusty but pretty and not too long. Loved the Roosevelt house.

We were very impressed with the condition of the Campobello Cottage and grounds. The flowers were beautiful, the walking trails in great shape and the tour guides very well informed. The entire park take sin much more than the Roosevelt family cottage as bike and walking trails meander throughout the park. Hint: skip the self guided tour and let one... More

Thank you to Canada & USA for saving this piece of history. A must see. Staff is great and very knowledgeable. The grounds are beautiful. I can see why the Roosevelt's summered there. Be sure to see the second house, the picture window is amazing.

I don't usually review "destinations" or attractions. The regular guide books do that well enough without my opinion: This place is an exception. A good day trip, if one is staying in Bar Harbor, or Bangor, ME. is a drive up US 1, along the Maine coast. This attraction (I hate calling it that) is about a 3 hour drive... More

This is a park full of history. The Roosevelt house is worth the tour, and the "Tea with Eleanor" daily event is a must do. The hiking and cycling trails are spectacular, and the rock beaches are great for collecting and kayaking.

Campobello was the summer retreat of Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt and I can certainly see why they enjoyed it so much. The home is very open, light and airy and would have been extremely welcoming. This history is this family is fascinating and the docents are knowledgeable and willing to answer all your questions. The setting on the Bay of... More

This park is amazing! The trails are like no where else. Saw Bald Eagles and seals. Once you start hiking you won't want to stop. Trails are well kept. There is such a verity of different type of trails. We spent several days in the park but have not see all it has to offer. We are already planning our... More
