The house and grounds were wonderful! I wish I had scheduled more time here. We toured the house and wandered around the garden. Gazed at the water where the Roosevelt's would have stared at the water. Was a moving experience. We rushed a bit because we had reservations for Tea with Eleanor. Our host for the tea was Taunya.

Great place to visit to learn about FDR's early life and career. guides in the house were very knowledgeable and informative. Spectacular scenery, especially if you get away from the developed areas and visit the parts of the island that are in their natural state. You can make it as strenuous as you'd like.

With lack of information, and preconceived ideas about Campobello Island as being crowded and "touristy", for many years we avoided a visit, but this last year we sailed from Deer Island , New Brunswick and were instantly impressed with the quiet, pristine beauty of the island. Another plus, the fascinating museum and house tour of FDR'S summer home. We stayed... More

It was a simpler time. It was a better time. We drove just across the border to a new time zone and a new experience at Roosevelt Campobello International Park, the summer home of president Franklin Delano Roosevelt from his youth. Visiting the actual rooms and seeing what passed for luxury in the early 1900s might be "roughing it" for... More

Taunya led our Tea with Eleanor on a Sunday last Fall. I encourage all who visit the cottage and island to take time to attend the tea. I could have listened for hours to her talking about Eleanor and her life of service to others.

I'm interested in presidential history, so this was a must-visit when we were across the bridge in Lubec, ME. Beautiful island and house with an excellent free tour. The highlight was definitely "Tea with Eleanor" - tea and cookies with an Eleanor Roosevelt historian telling us interesting stories and answering questions. It's free but first-come-first-served, so get there early to... More

We arrived before the visitor center opened at 10 AM, so we could get free tickets to Tea with Eleanor. We got our tickets when the visitor center opened, and were invited to see a short video about the Roosevelt Cottage and Campobello Island, after which there was a walk to the cottage guided by a park ranger.

Very beautiful setting. Very knowledgeable tour guides. Be sure to go through the house and gardens. This is in New Brunswick so US passport required.

Campobello Island is relaxed and surrounded by gorgeous scenery, miles (kilometers) of carriage roads suitable for taking leisurely drives, picnics, bicycling, hiking trails, touring small coastal fishing villages where you might see whales and dolphins swimming nearby.
