Live Like the Roosevelts on Campobello Island

Were you as enthralled with @KenBurns' newest documentary, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, as we were? Then read on, as we show you how to wave goodbye to your daily routine, step back in time, and experience Campobello Island, the beloved summer home of Franklin and Eleanor, for yourself.

A favourite holiday location for the Roosevelt family for decades, Campobello Island (@campobelloca) in New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy is a must-visit spot for your Two Nation Vacation.

FDR's cottage still stands today and is the centerpiece of Roosevelt Campobello International Park (@FDRCampobello), serving as a symbol of the close friendship between Canada and the United States.

The 34-room cottage mixes Arts and Crafts style with elements of early American Colonial architecture, and looks almost exactly as it did in 1920.

The wild, unspoiled beauty, an abundance of wildlife and sealife, the classic Mulholland Point Lighthouse, the lush gardens - the very same things that enchanted the Roosevelts are yours to explore on Campobello.

Take Tea with Eleanor at the Hubbard Cottage tearoom and explore photographs and artefacts, and hear stories of the first lady's life and her time on Campobello.

Then work up an appetite by hiking or driving one of the many walking paths or carriage roads in the park, which let you experience the natural beauty of the island as the Roosevelts would have.

End your day dining in style at the park's new restaurant. From down-home classics to freshly caught seafood, there's something for every one at the Fireside Restaurant, all served up with a dose of legendary East Coast hospitality.
