“"Tea with Eleanor"”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Roosevelt Campobello International Park on Campobello Island in New Brunswick Canada is
well worth a visit. The park is beautifully maintained with gorgeous flowers and plants!
It is so peaceful, serene, and beautifully landscaped - no wonder Franklin Roosevelt vacationed
on this island. A short 15 minute film is shown plus the house has the original canoe built for
Roosevelt by the Indians plus many other memorabilia. The house is a showpiece. Best of all was "Tea with Eleanor."
Tea and cookies are served while the hostesses (Violet and Carolyn) give such informative and entertaining talks on the life of Eleanor, who did such good in the world - She was way
before her time!
This was the highlight of our vacation!!!! Don't miss it! We will be returning!

“Wish I had more time to spend here”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I visited RCIP specifically to have "Tea with Eleanor". You have tea and cookies while learning about Eleanor Roosevelt's amazing life. It is only offered twice a day for a limited number of people and requires a (free) ticket. I highly recommend taking the time to do this. The "cottage" is the nicest "cottage" I've ever been in. We visited Mulholland Point lighthouse, drove most of the roads and walked through Eagle Hill bog (a great walk - bring insect repellant). If you are in the area this is definitely worth a stop.

“First trip over the border did not disappoint!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I had just a couple of hours to play in this breathtaking international park. It is so peaceful in this area. The grounds around the Roosevelt home are beautifully-manicured, but be sure you explore beyond just the home. Walk down to the water, drive along the roads a bit, take in the sights of the lighthouse.

“Don't Miss The Tea With Eleanor!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This park is such a gem! We spent the better part of the day exploring the park, trails, main house, visitor's center, and the "not to be missed" Tea with Eleanor where our hostesses shared wonderful stories and history about Eleanor Roosevelt and her experiences on Campobello Island. It was one of the highlights of this wonderful and unique park. Arrive early to make sure you get a ticket to the tea (which was free) b/c it is very popular. The tea and homemade cookies are nice, but the real gem are the stories and the hostesses!
