About Brenda Leavitt

We, as owners, created our family compound on Hidden Pines, which includes this Cabin in the Woods, along with Miranda's Hideaway and our log home. Rich is a builder and has built this property for a guest home for our family and friends. Now that our children are grown, we have extra bedrooms in our home for our friends, so we decided to have other guests, like you, enjoy all that we have to offer. We have lived in Fryeburg area since 1981 and have been blessed with the surroundings here of family and friends. Living on property, assures you that all your needs will be taken care of should there be a reason to contact us. We love where we live and always enjoy making new friends, yet afford you the privacy you desire.

Brenda Leavitt purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Brenda Leavitt chose Fryeburg

Lovingly built by Rich, Miranda's Hideaway was designed with family and guests in mind. Decorated by daughter, Miranda (hence the name), she thought carefully about living in a tiny space with all the amenities of a larger home. With a grown family, we decided to invite our guests to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a wooded setting, and yet, still a drive away away from downtown village of Fryeburg. Located between North Conway NH, a mecca for shopping, dining and many activities, and the same equal distance from the lakes region of Bridgton, Maine. Home of Fryeburg Fair, Saco River, Jockey Cap, Fryeburg Academy and Indian and Forest Acres Camps. You are so close to everything here yet, can look out your window in the early morning hours and catch a glimpse of beautiful deer, turkey, and on rare occasions, fox, and maybe a bear.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Miranda's Hideaway was the PERFECT spot for me and my husband's 10th anniversary getaway! When I say the house was spotless, it was spotless; Esther's attention to detail was very appreciated. Everything one could possibly need is provided.....toilet tissue, paper towels, body wash, shampoo, fluffy towels, comfy linens and blankets, and a fully equipped kitchen! The cabin's furnishings are so cozy and comfortable, and the propane fireplace provides nice ambiance and keeps the cabin toasty warm. I just can't say enough about how enjoyable our stay was!

During your stay be sure to visit The White Mountain Curiosity Shoppe on Bridgton Road while you're in Fryeburg.....great finds! We also enjoyed two dinners at 302 West Smokehouse & Tavern right on Main Street 5 minutes away.....casual atmosphere, huge portions, yummy food, and our waitress Terri (both nights) was super friendly and attentive. We also traveled to North Conway Village (15 minutes away) and shopped at some terrific spots.

We will definitely be back! Miranda's Hideaway is in an ideal location. The property is private yet so close to so much. Thank you again, Brenda, for opening your home to us. Truly a special place! I've raved so much since we've been home that my daughter is considering booking a weekend with my 9 year old grandson very soon. I just know he would love sleeping in that loft!

Owner's Response: You seriously brought so much joy to my evening Sue. I will be sure to let Esther know that she was the topic of your review! I am so blessed to have her. 302 is one of our favorites as well. The next trip here you must also try Jonathan's Pub (downstairs under Oxford House Inn)! Please come back again and I will hope your daughter books!!!! Brenda

The best cabin ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Miranda's cabin over the Christmas break and had the best experience ever. First, the cabin is fantastic, extremely clean and cozy. The view from the window is stunning, we felt like we were in the middle of the nowhere (which we, of course, loved). Brenda and Rich decorated the cabin with beautiful Christmas decorations which made our experience even better. The place is very close to *amazing* trails with stunning views, ski slopes and shops. Although we stayed here in the winter, we are sure it's as good during the summer months. We are planning on coming back when it gets warmer to explore more trails. Last but not least, we got to meet Brenda and Rich who are the most welcoming hosts we have encountered. We finally rested and forgot about our busy lives, recharged the batteries and got inspired to be better people :). Thank you!
