Hi and welcome to Camden Cottage! Camden Cottage is my year-round home. During the months of July and August each year I move into my basement studio apartment, so you can get a chance to enjoy a home-away-from-home, here in Old Orchard Beach. Please feel free to knock on my door or give me a call during your stay if you need anything. I'd be happy to tell you about my favorite restaurants, parks, beaches and sights around the area.
Miranda Barrett purchased this house in 2011
I bought Camden Cottage in 2011 with the purpose of vacationing here myself during the summers and renting it out to vacationers to help with the costs. Little did I know then that I would completely fall in love with the coastal Maine lifestyle!
What I love most about Camden Cottage is the open, easy-breezy style of the house as well as the quirky nooks and crannies, such as the built-in drawers, sloping ceiling and little back staircase to the MBR. I did all the painting and decorating myself (I consider myself a master at interior painting!) and tried to carry a consistent beachy style and color scheme throughout the house. Camden Cottage is a classic 'New Englander' built in the 1920's, so of course there's still lots to be done. So, you can look forward to improvements and upgrades as you return year after year!
Thanks a lot Miranda!
We had a really nice week in your house.
The house was very well equiped, close from everything. We could not have asked for something better. Everything was perfect.
Our family greatly enjoys staying at Camden Cottage each year. Miranda is a great and kind host. She keeps in touch during the months leading up to the rental, for example, to share attraction updates and discount offers. The house is extremely clean with fresh new updates, and feels larger than the photos on HomeAway reflect. It is also very well stocked with new, quality kitchenware and other conveniences. The neighborhood is quiet, but walks to the pier, the nearby farmstand, a park and playground, and of course the beach are very reasonable. Camden Cottage is the only place we will stay in OOB.
Nice house, well supplied with everything we needed for the week. 10 minute walk to the beach. We were 2 families with 5 small children so we ended up driving a couple days, but the walk was easy enough. The owner provides a cart to help get chairs and supplies back and forth easily.
Favorite part was farm market that was a 2 minutes walk. Fresh seafood and vegetables (they steam your lobster and corn for you upon request) and the house has all the utensils and cookware to prepare and eat. Plenty of firewood for fires every night and Charcoal/kerosene l for the grill.
The owner Miranda was very helpful. We took day trips to Kennybunkport and Portland, not far away. Lots more place to visit but we spent most of our time on the gorgeous beach.
We would absolutely recommend this place foe couples or families!
The house is nice, especially the 1st floor. Not new but clean and roomy. Just far enough from the noise of main street. About 10 min walk to the beach with young kids. Access to the beach easy and nice, not too crowded. Owner is very helpful. I would recommend it.
My family and I have vacations yearly at OOB and this was our first year renting Camden Cottage. Ms. Barrett has created such a restful, beautiful, and well equipped environment that makes having a wonderful vacation virtually impossible!! Her friendly, low-key personality and helpfulness regarding local attractions and shopping were a plus. I would recommend Camden Cottage without reservation and look forward to many more wonderful vacations there.
My family stayed at Camden Cottage last week and had a GREAT vacation! weather was great, the house was beautiful and well stocked with necessities. The owner/hostess was very nice and enthusiastic. The only downside was that the back yard was not grass, but stones. I totally understand the benefit of no-maintanence but we wouldve spent more time out back if the kids had grass to play on. but it was not a complete spoiler, just unexpected. Thanks!
Perfectly positioned, Camden Cottage is located in a quiet residential area just a short 7-minute walk down to the beach or into town and the pier or train station. With the park and playground 5 minutes away, Camden Cottage is ideal for families of all sizes!
