About Miranda Barrett

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

Why Miranda Barrett chose Southern Coast of Maine

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 makes this house unique

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!

Adorable spacious cottage with lots of character and a home away from home feel.

  • 5 of 5

Miranda was a wonderful host and the house is beautiful. We had an amazing time and Miranda ensured we had everything to make that happen. The backyard with fire pit, grill, Adirondacks and picnic tables was perfect for steak and lobster dinner, roasting marshmallows and drinking beer with friends. We would absolutely come again. Thank you Miranda!!!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Miranda is a wonderful host! Her beautiful home is in a quiet neighborhood, but still a short walk to the city park, the pier, and of course New England's finest beach. Our family looks forward each year to visiting Miranda and Camden Cottage in the summer. We just returned from our fifth stay in as many years!

Wonderful vacation week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Camden Cottage! The house is clean, lovely, and well stocked. There is plenty of room to relax and spread out. Additionally, the backyard is especially nice at night. We had several fires and ate dinner outside most nights. Miranda is a fantastic host, and she has thought of everything. The house is in a great location-close to everything. I can't think of a single negative thing to say about the place. We will be back next year!

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th year renting Camden Cottage. Miranda takes pride in her rental, making sure that renters do not want for anything. It is beautifully decorated and gets you into a restful vacation mode immediately. The outdoor space is great....Adirondack chairs and a fire pit. The welcome basket with smore fixings was a real treat. We a absolutely LOVE it and are already looking forward to next year!!!

Camden Cottage was a great place to stay! Clean, well stocked and close to the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Camden Cottage for our summer vacation. We had four 18 year old kids with us. It was so much more than we expected. It was so clean and well stocked. You really only need to bring your clothes with you. I brought extra pillows and blankets and did not even use them. She has beach chairs and a cart to get your stuff to the beach. It was perfect.

The back yard is adorable! Perfect area to grill and entertain around the fire at night after a day at the beach.

I was worried about the owner living on the property, I was worried about making to much noise and keeping her up at night. There is no need to worry. She is such a wonderful and nice person. She is only there if you need her, she does not intrude at all.

I cannot express how clean that house is. It is the cleanest cottage I have ever been in. The way she decorated the cottage is so cute. It is stocked with games and cards, music and movies. The walk to the beach is an easy one, with little kids it might be a little more difficult because it is uphill on the way back, but it was so worth it.

Thank you Miranda for a great vacation.

I have a big family and the house was perfect, lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time. Location of property was central to everything. Walk to beach or nightlife was not bad. We ventured out a couple days and the drive was not bad to get to nearby towns for tours we wanted to go on. Miranda was a perfect host and made sure everything we needed was there. I have rented other properties and always needed to bring paper supplies but she had it all. Miranda goes above and beyond. Thanks for everything!
