We went as a family over the summer and was not disappointed. The entrance to Canada from the bridge was quick and easy. Once in Canada, we stopped at a little information building and the lady gentleman there told us all about the island and gave us some pointers on places to see with the kids. We went to the Roosevelt cottage first and ended up spending about 3 hrs there. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable and encouraged our kids to ask as many questions they wanted. We were even able to take photographs of the interior of the house (can't do that in the US). Then we walked the short distance to the other summer home and took a quick tour as well. There was a tea going on in the main room but we were able to walk about the area on our own. The views were breathtaking! We went down to what is left of the docking area where President Roosevelt would arrive by boat and my husband and kids took to skipping rocks across the water while I sat and enjoyed the peace and quiet. We learned a lot about life during the Roosevelt years and enjoyed the family time. Will definitely go again!
