I can't say enough about the wonderful staff at Roosevelt Campobello International Park. They are always on the ball with our visiting tour groups this season! The senior citizen passengers love the box lunches and/or Tea with Eleanor programs we arrange. And of course the film and cottage visit are so special. Your whole island is breathtaking and your park... More

The island offers several lighthouse sightings, lots of hiking trails and water views and a tour of the FDR summer home, which was quite worthwhile. Other than 4 pieces of furniture, they say it is exactly as the Roosevelts left it. We also toured the West Quoddy lighthouse which was the highlight of the day. We saw minke whales and... More

We went to Campobello Island for the day and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was no admission charge to the park or cottage. The Roosevelt Cottage has been very well taken care of and they had wonderful informative staff who would greet you and tell you information about each part of the house. There were some... More

We drove over from the Maine side to the Island just to visit the site. Very informative and delightful to see and marvel at the history here. Both of us enjoyed the visit very much, the staff is helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Suitable for all ages. We were early in the season, and the ferry at the other end of... More

"Are you having tea with Eleanor?" I was asked over breakfast at the B and B. I had no idea what she meant, but we turned up at the Roosevelt 'cottage' and were told that the (free) tea was starting in seven minutes' time and there was space for the four of us. It was brilliant - hearing about Eleanor's... More

What a beautifully preserved FDR summer home. The self guided tour through the home revealed exactly what it was like when FDR spent his summer here. Everything is original. Only 3 items in the home are reproduction or not original to the home . The staff was super friendly and knowledgable. They made suggestions / recommendations for other sites on... More

Even if you are not the cultural type, or traveling with (young) children (like us), you will enjoy this, for many reasons. Rare are the places where you will be so close to US heritage. This is not your usual museum where they keep you yards (meters) away from everything. You are right in the middle of President Roosevelts house.... More

We enjoyed the double ferry ride needed to get here (Canadian route). This added to a glorious day. The Roosevelt summer home is most interesting to visit. It is staffed with numerous docents who provide additional information about their section. Truly a lifestyle from another age! The movie is very dated and while I know the history has not changed...

What a wonderful experience it was to have Tea with Eleanor! The wonderful hostesses, Taunia (sorry if I'm spelling that wrong!) and Dawn did a really excellent job relating the stories of her life and making us feel like she was there! Thank you!!

Went with mixed age, varied interests small group. There was something here for everyone. I enjoyed the movie, granddaughter enjoyed seeing the rooms, though she wouldn't want to live there. All us older folks were enthralled by the huge megaphone in the corner of the dining room -- used to call the kids in from the bay for meals. We... More
