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 Old Orchard Beach

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!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this rental. It was beautifully decorated and well maintained. The kitchen contained any pot or gadget we even thought about needing. There was plenty of room for my family to spread out. About the only issue for some might be that the stairs to the upstairs bedrooms were quite steep, but there is one bed downstairs.

Just Like being at home

  • 5 of 5

The Camden house was an experience that I will re-live time and time again. Thank you very much Miranda for opening your home to my family. It was the best summer vacation I have ever experienced. Your property was a perfect setting for a summer vacation. Every possible kitchen gadget and home amenity was provided. The outdoor grounds and fire pit were perfect every evening. Thank you for providing an endless supply of firewood and the ability to cook outdoors on a weber charcoal grill. The local area is surrounded by little gift shops and morning grocery stores that bring a bit of surprise and a smile to everybody's face. Exploring the surrounding area is so necessary, even if you think you know the area. There is always something new to discover. The laundry room was absolutely perfect and very efficient. I stayed in this home with my wife and her three children, as well as my niece and nephew, with no problems of overcrowding. I look forward to next season and to making OOB my second annual family vacation, at the Camden cottage.

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!!!
