The rustic Fireside Restaurant is one of the buildings of the former Adams estate. At one point there were 13 structures on the parcel. The compound had the lodge, an ice house and ice pond, cabins, carriage trails, a doll house, tea room, and it was the first place on the island that had running water. The Province of New Brunswick has recently completely renovated the restaurant, which is now operated by the park.
The Roosevelt Campobello International Park is located on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada just across the international border from Lubec on the easternmost tip of Maine. The focal point of the Park, the Franklin D. Roosevelt summer cottage, and the Park’s Visitor Centre open the last Saturday in May and remain open twenty weeks. The Park grounds and Natural Area are open year round.
Roosevelt Campobello International Park is a singular example of international cooperation - jointly administered, staffed, and funded by the peoples of Canada and the United States. Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s magnificent summer home is preserved here in a combination indoor museum and outdoor nature park on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada.
