“History at its best”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We liked the vast amount of history in the cottages. It helped making the Roosevelts alive. I disliked the overt propaganda.

“Nice Tour with a Great water view. No wonder FDR choose this location.”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

2010 - - Step back in time to visit the vacation home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. When leaving Lubec Maine we took the bridge over to visit Campobello Island and the Roosevelt cottage and grounds. Be sure to stop at the information center to gather lots of history. Also visit the Mulholland Point Lighthouse and see the sea otter as they are plentiful. And the East Quoddy Head Lighthouse at the far side. A little more difficult to get to.

A visit to this place is a must for people who are interested in history, and will enjoy the beauty of the area as well. The guides at the cottage are very helpful, and visiting here is an opportunity to feel part of history. Joel Schwartz

This is an amazing piece of history you have got to see. Just a short trip across the Canadian border, onto Campobello Island.

“Wonderful Place to Visit”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Campobello is a DO NOT MISS attraction. The site is maintained, docents very knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to interact with patrons. The site itself is loaded with history. A special "Tea with Eleanor" is held twice daily. And everything is free!
