This is an amazing piece of history you have got to see. Just a short trip across the Canadian border, onto Campobello Island.

“Wonderful Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Campobello is a DO NOT MISS attraction. The site is maintained, docents very knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to interact with patrons. The site itself is loaded with history. A special "Tea with Eleanor" is held twice daily. And everything is free!

“not just for history buffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Roosevelt Internation Park is not just for folks interested in history. The grounds are meticulously groomed. The tour guides are lovely and attentive. The location on the Atlantic on a beach with views of Lubec is superb. Will visit again.

“History and scenery definitely worth a day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

While visiting the Lubec area, we took a day trip to Campobello Island. The Roosevelt Cottage visitor center had an excellent film about FDR, his family and the cottage. Nice clean facilities too. The cottage grounds and flowerbeds are very well kept. The cottage tour was great. Since it was mid-September, the traffic was quite light. This enabled us to not only get a very personalized tour but gave us lots of opportunities to really engage the volunteer docents with lots of questions. Then it was off to visit East Quoddy and Mulholland lighthouses. Not a lot of food choices on the island. We chose Family Fisheries which was very good. The rest of the afternoon was spent driving through the park to all the scenic ocean view areas to hike and take photos. All in all a great day.
