Easy access, free, interesting US and Canadian history. Definitely worth a visit. Be sure to drive around the rest of the Island to see the other sights

The Park is gorgeous, tour of Roosevelt's home wonderful, visiting other 'cottages' on site well worth your time. Very nice lunch at cafe, with scrumptious strawberry soup However, the scene stealer is "Tea with Eleanor". The Park's docents put together a program to highlight Eleanor...More

Roosevelt's summer home provides an interesting tour and some good insight into the man and his family. Really out of the way but if you are in northern Maine it is worth a visit.

It can be hard to find a lot of information about this place. Note that it is most of the entire island and is worth a full day. Hubbard cottage is a place of dreams. Roosevelt cottage was also wonderful and we loved the tour....More

If you plan to visit the lighthouse be sure to check the tides so you are within the time frame to walk up to it and get back. You will have a guide and it is $10 but worth it. Enjoy the scenery.

The best advice is to bring a jacket or a sweater no matter the time of year. Our waters are cold and when the wind shifts the temp can really drop.

Take tea with Eleanor and tour the houses. Total 4 hours. You can spend more time walking if you wish. If you take tea, do the paid tour not the free one. Much better.
