We visited Roosevelt's summer cottage, if you can call 34 rooms and 10,000 square feet a cottage. It truly is a step back in time and the furnishings are very spartan, considering the wealth that existed. Our guide Jocelyn gave us a great tour of the part that is open, filling us in with little tidbits of information about FDR... More

We included this side trip on a recent RV tour. What a great historic preservation of US history! It is a wonderful collaboration of US/Canadian effort and admission is free. The "Tea with Eleanor" included tea and cookies as well as a great talk giving insight into the former First Lady's life. Be sure to arrive early enough to get... More

Toured Roosevelt's cottage. Very good and interesting tour. Enjoyed seeing the different rooms in the home and getting an insight into Roosevelt's time there. Home is located at a scenic location with backyard leading to a boat pier at the bay. Offers nice view. Enjoyed lunch at the excellent nearby fireside restaurant. Only one there. I then drove around the... More

What a beautiful place to spend the day! We traveled to the Park early afternoon in time to participate in the free "Eleanors Tea". The 2 ladies did a fantastic job in setting not only beautiful tea table settings, but also gave a very informative talk about the life of such a wonderful lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. (My husband even enjoyed... More

This joint US and Canadian International Park is not to be missed. The Roosevelt Cottage with all its artifacts and superb education on the life and times of the Roosevelt family is outstanding. Tea with Eleanor is entertaining. Most visitors don't take time for the excellent wetland boardwalk on the loop road. If you like plants, birds and wildlife, there... More

The park is a rare opportunity to see and appreciate the personal side of history. The highlights are the meticulous grounds, the access to several cottages with engaging and informed staff to provide information and perspective, and the "Tea with Eleanor" with two ladies that are a wealth of information while being just plain fun to spend some time with....

We really hadn't planned on visiting here but were delighted we took the time. It was free (a welcome surprise) and beautiful, informative and completely enjoyable. We walked around the Visitor's Center, the beautiful grounds and gardens and poked for hours in the homes. It is such a beautiful place and reminiscent of the summer life of the Roosevelts.

We were staying in the Bar Harbor area for a week and decided on this wonderful day trip. We timed our adventure visiting the beautiful lighthouse by the low tide schedule so that we could walk out to the far island with the lighthouse.

For some reason, I expect the very rich to have houses stocked full of expensive goodies. At Campobello Island's Roosevelt house, you will find the evidence of wealth in the house size, land, water and neighbors. The actual furnishings are simple and quite enjoyable.
