Bottomless Cookie Jar

Who can resist our Famous Bottomless Cookie Jar! Filled daily with made-from-scratch goodies straight from our collection of recipes from our antique cookbooks. Delighting the kid in all of us, we've found many a set of grown-up hands caught in the cookie jar. There's nothing like coming back to the inn to experience the aroma of yummy cookies coming right out of the oven. Irresistible!

 

Early Morning Coffee Service

For those early risers, we offer an early morning coffee service. Savor that first cup of the morning on the front porch; perhaps hearing the loons exchange good-morning calls across the lake.  For a special vacation treat, order the Early Bird Coffee Service and we’ll deliver it right to your door at a time you choose alongside 2 Refreshing Fruit Smoothies.

 

Guest Pantry

For the snacker in all of us, we offer 24-hour complimentary soft drinks, gourmet coffee & Harney Teas, hot cocoa, and of course our Famous Bottomless Cookie Jar.  In the cool autumn months, find Hot Mulled Cider fresh from the area’s many local cider mills.

 

Fireplaces

Because we are a year-round inn, guests can enjoy any of our fireplaces, found in every common room.  Gather around our wood-burning fireplace in the den to visit with newfound friends, or relax in the formal living room in front of one of the inn’s two ornate Victorian fireplaces.

 

The Game Closet

Whether it’s a game of chess, scrabble or cribbage, or outside games for the lawn, our game closet is tucked away under the stairs in the den and stocked with adult-minded games and puzzles as well as a nice assortment of children’s games and puzzles.

 

Movie Collection

Choose from our 25+ year collection of movie videos and DVDs.  Many are Academy Award winning and can be enjoyed on the guest TV in the den.  Guests in the luxury suites may enjoy them in the comfort of their private sitting rooms.

 

Century Grand Piano

If you enjoy playing, please make yourself at home at the keyboard of our 19th Century Victorian Parlor Grand Piano.  Built by Guildemeister & Kroger, Steinway’s former builder, this parlor grand is a testament to the grace and beauty of Victorian era creations.

 

Library

Noble House Inn contains an extensive catalogued book collection.  You are welcome to browse and read any of the books, but please replace them before you check-out.  We even have a great assortment of children’s books in the Parlor and for the true bibliophile, reserve the Library Suite.



Green Practices

Organic & Local

From Weston's and Sherman Farm Markets in Fryeburg to the Farmer's Market in Bridgton , from Rippling Waters Organic Farm to Morning Dew Natural Foods Grocery, and from our our own organic gardens to your plate, we present fresh, organic and local ingredients in many of our wicked-good breakfasts.

 

Reducing, Reusing & Recycling

From canvas bags to foot power, we’re reducing our impact on the environment by reusing wherever possible.  We practice extensive waste reduction and recycling of glass, paper, cardboard, metal, plastic and ceramic.  These efforts have reduced our waste significantly, the majority of which is now recycled.

 

Water Reduction Practices

To conserve water, one of Maine’s greatest natural resources, we have taken several steps to reduce its usage here at Noble House Inn; we have installed low-flow toilets and a commercial dishwashing system.  We also personally conserve water and encourage guests to do the same by doing such things as turning faucets off when not in immediate use and asking guests to consider using their linens more than once.

 

Smoke Free Environment

For the health and comfort of our guests and the health of the environment, Noble House Inn is a smoke-free environment.

 

Compact Florescent Bulbs

Our change from incandescent to compact florescent bulbs in over 75% of our fixtures has reduced our energy usage significantly.  We further protect the environment by responsibly recycling our bulbs.
