“A beautiful place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

From Lubec ME, FDR'S summer estate is a short ride over the bridge to Campobello Island, New Brunswick Canada. The Visitors Center and the estate's staff are very friendly and helpful in answering any questions you may have. The grounds are well maintained with a beautiful water view from the home's front porch. One of the most photographed lighthouse is located at the tip of the island, about a 15 minute drive from FDR's estate. Remember to bring your passports from the US.

“Roosevelt Cottage, Campobello”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The highlight of our trip was the "Tea with Eleanor" It was like sitting at tea with old friends listening to stories. The very in depth presentation was obviously a labor of love for the two lovely ladies who presented it and served the tea. A must for anyone visiting
the park.

“Well worth the visit !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We very much enjoyed touring the Roosevelt home and the warm international feeling between well-trained Canadian docents and this important piece of 20th-Century American history. The coastal scenery is spectacular, and the whole experience of visiting Canada just across the U.S. border was wonderful.

“Nature buffs, don't overlook this park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Lots is written about the house and history, but if you're a nature buff, this is also a wonderful park. We drove down Glenserven Road, across from the main entrance. It's a windy dirt road bordered by grey birch, lovely and peaceful. At the end is Liberty Point, which looks across to West Quoddy Lighthouse. In the channel seals were squabbling as they looked to claim spots on the ledge against the incoming tide. In the eddy lines harbor porpoises cavorted seeking fish. Eiders, gulls, cormorants, guillemots all swam about. Just amazing sightings, my spouse even spotted a whale in the distance. Raccoon Beach, Herring Cove, in each location seals were spotted. There was one other car parked at Liberty Point, but we were on our own elsewhere. Don't overlook this side.

Informative and interesting without too much stuff... just the job! Almost worth the journey up the main coast to visit.
