Living so close to the border is something most Canadians do...............for instance here in Quebec ( we're the largest Canadian province ) we border New York - New Hampshire - Vermont and Maine. And that's just to the south of us - we also border Ontario - James Bay - Hudson Bay - as well as Newfoundland and Labrador and New Brunswick ( plus a few places even I've never heard of )
That's a lot of territory!
Campobello Island is in New Brunswick ( and also borders Maine ) - and is most famous for the fact that it was where the U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt spent his summers with his family - from infancy until he became an adult - where upon he built his own 34 room summer retreat on the island. It's now the main attraction at Campobello International Park.

So I thought I'd check out what else is available in water front properties and came across this gem !

This is truly a slice of paradise - even if you weren't crazy about the home ( I am ) to have that view as your backyard would be priceless, don't you think?
What a perfect venue for family weddings this would make !!!
Ok - time to step inside !
That is the most glorious stove - really - how beautiful is that - and it's included in the sale !
A separate walk in pantry
I'll take that dresser too please - thank you
Doesn't it make you feel like you stepped back to an easier, simpler time?
The Roosevelts at Campobello
Campobello was the "beloved" summer retreat for the Roosevelt family, shaping Franklin into a great leader, and encouraging Eleanor to become an independent woman.

I've been to New Brunswick - but never to Campobello Island - t's now officially on my bucket list - and since we border that province it shouldn't be a difficult bucket to fill :)
Have a wonderful day everyone !
