We started our visit walking some trails as the Visitors' Centre was not yet open. Well maintained trails, but be prepared with walking shoes, the ground can be somewhat rough. The Visitors' Centre was informative and the folks at the desk were very helpful. The Roosevelt's' cottage was worth the visit showing life as it was. You can view most... More

We went to Campobello to see FDR's family summer cottage. The house was lovely, and guides were very well informed. Lots of fun facts to be had. Sorry to have missed the tea with Eleanor but The water view was spectacular, flower gardens lovely. We were thrilled to see several bald eagles. The nearby West Quoddy lighthouse in Lubec, Maine...

Campobello Island is reached over a bridge from Lubec & requires a passport for US citizens. The first part of the island is the park. The Roosevelt Cottage is visited by self guided tour. 15 mins film at Visitor Center pretty uninteresting. Visitor Center has exhibits . There are several other cottages on the property . One offers Tea with... More

FDR's summer home has been preserved for the public to see how Eleanor & Franklin and their 5 children lived in the summer months. The tour is self-guiding with docents at 4 stations in the house. You can walk around the grounds, visit the first floor of a neighbor's home and learn more in the modern visitor center.

We originally went over to Campobello Island to see the Roosevelt House and do some exploring of the island. What we found was amazing. The carriage roads in the Roosevelt International Park took us to spectacular beaches, rugged seashore and fantastic scenery. The House is well preserved and the staffers are full of information about the Roosevelt's time there as... More

Arrived at opening time and even in September there was a line of 20+ people. Once inside the guides were very helpful and ushered us into a short movie on FDR and the location. Our very knowledgeable guide walked us around the grounds explaining the history, the decline and the FDR influence. Many facts about which I was unaware. One... More

If you get to Lubec (eastern most town in the US), and you have your passport, make sure you make a visit to Campobello in New Brunswick. This just happens to be the summer cottage of FDR as he was growing up. The current cottage has been restored and contains many of Franklin and Eleanor's belongings. The views of the... More

The Roosevelts and their friends and family had a beautiful spot at Campobello. The "cottage" was well done as was the information center. We arrived in time to buy tickets for Tea With Eleanor. $14 each plus tax for last tea of the day. There are two free teas daily. They are first come first served. I think there is... More

My husband and I recently moved to Maine and we are about 55 miles from Campobello. We talked for months about going and kept putting it off. We went yesterday and so glad we did. It is a beautiful, well-maintained, and lovely place to visit. Lovely gardens and views, too. We were very impressed with how nice and accommodating the... More

Our vacation plan was to visit Acadia National Park, and it planning the itinerary I noticed that Campbello was a little farther up the coast. Realizing that we'd be unlikely to come through this area again, I decided to extend our trip to include a day at the historic park at Campbello. I was very glad I did. The visitor... More
