The estate itself gave a real feeling of history. They offer a free "Tea with Eleanor" that you need tickets in advance. We have done this now 3 years in a row. The two ladies that gave the program about Eleanor were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that they made the program. Kudos to Carolyn and Debbie.

We visited the cottage on Campobello last week. History buffs will be satisfied. The home and grounds are neat and all is well-preserved.Loved seeing much of the original furnishings and personal items. The staff was so friendly and helpful as well. This is worth a short trip off Maine rt. #1. As this is Canada, bring a passport. Local 9... More

Didn't know what to expect - came here while visiting Lubec, ME - and it was wonderful. We signed up for the Tea with Eleanor program through the visitor's center, and this was the highlight. Two ladies shared their extensive knowledge of Eleanor Roosevelt's life while we dined on homemade gingersnaps and delicious tea with cream and sugar cubes -... More

Wonderful park honoring Memory of Roosevelts in this superb setting. Great guides inform about family and location. Roosevelt cottage impeccably maintained. Definitely do a Tea with Eleanor. Definitely eat at the Fireside and walk in hiking trails, perfect time.

Have been wanting to go visit FDR's summer home for a long time and was not disappointed. We were met outside by George and he talked to us about the fascinating Roosevelt history, and led us around the grounds. The house tours are free and amazing. Throughout the house are docents who will give you wonderful history and answer any... More

This is a great place to stop and visit for a couple hours while on Campobello. The guides are extremely knowledgeable about the Roosevelt family and provide some great insights for the history lovers. The grounds are beautiful and the home is an exceptional sight.

What a beautiful park and visitor center. The docents were absolutely incredible. We were fortunate to get tickets to Tea with Eleanor which was passionately narrated by Taunya and Dawn. The homemade cookies were delicious and we bought the tea served there at the local grocery. The hikes and drives on the island were beautiful. We went two days to... More

Great park, ample parking and free. We got to do the "Tea with Eleanor," also free. It focused on her life and accomplishments. The "cottage" was interesting and beautiful lawns and views. It was lovely.
