Since my first trip to Bar Harbor I wanted to visit FDR's summer home on Campobell Island, Canada. It was worth the drive. The employees were so helpful and friendly. Did have to get lodging on the Canadian side, but that went well.

Such a well presented look into the private lives of Franklin and Eleanor. FDR had been coming here since he was a boy. Eleanor used it as her hideaway when the world came crushing in. I can see why. They have done a marvelous job...More

The main "cottage" fine by itself, add the neighboring ones on either side and it makes for a very nice afternoon. Our tour guide was very informative and interactive.

Once a day and it is first come first serve for Tea with Eleanor. Just cross FDR bridge from Lubec and stop at the tourist information place or download the island map from the internet but there is no way to get lost.

The best advice is to bring a jacket or a sweater no matter the time of year. Our waters are cold and when the wind shifts the temp can really drop.

How Long On Campobello Island? (9 Replies)
I am currently researching a trip to Maine and Campobello Island for next summer. (Yes, I am an obsessive planner. #Grin) The Mr and I are interested in seeing the Roosevelt Campobello International Park. I am also thinking we would enjoy a tour of the Island to get the history, and to see the East Quoddy Lighthouse. Most people recommend this as a day trip from Bar Harbor, but to do it 'right', in your opinion is that enough time? Thanks in advance for your insight & advice!

Thank you for your reply Trina. We really want to see Maine, so we don't have enough vacation time to spend the week you suggest, (I wish!), but I am going back to my original plan of staying 3 days 2 nights. I look forward to checking out your link. Again, thanks for your insight! :)
