Our van is picking you up at any place on Campobello and Lubec. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.

Our guide will meet you at any location on Campobello Island and you will enjoy all sights and hear about our rich history. All standard tours will last about 3hrs. If you are in a Motor coach or are a motor coach operator, your tour will be shorter as coaches cannot access the Natural area of the Roosevelt Park.

Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.

Summerkeys

The little town of Lubec, Maine offers a very unique experience, called Summerkeys. Besides of many educational music courses, they now also have courses in photography and creative writing. This has been going on since 1992 and Summerkeys have contributed to developing tourism industry in a big way. “Summerkeys” was established by Bruce Potterton in honouring his mother Mary (1905-1993), who came from a very muscial family. She even helped in the start-up phase.
Lubec church
For us it is the weekly concerts in the  Congregational Christian Church that puts a highlight on our place on Campobello.
Every Wednesday we have the opportunity to drive 5km crossing the border to attend a wonderful concert, and yesterday the first concert of the seaon took place at 7:30pm EDT.

It was a piano concert performed by John Newell, a renown composer and pianist, born in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Listening to his performance I was marvelling how  a gifted composer can look out the window and transform dancing snow flakes into a musical adventure. (Claude Debussy)

Newell’s short piece called “Winter Winds” made me freeze when I envisioned a brutal winter storm howling across the sea. It’s like painting a picture but instead of paint and paintbrush the composer uses his feeling to put the keys on paper.

Summerkey’s concerts attracts a weekly crowd of adults 50+ years old. Rarely we see young people among the crowd.
