Lynn and Matt Williams -- Our Story

After Empty Nesting and the pandemic changing the temperature of Matt's executive retail career, the two decided it was time for a change.  Moving back to Lynn's native state of Maine was the goal, and getting back to her hospitality roots was the perfect fit.  Lynn is a trained chef with broad knowledge of the industry.  She was also lucky enough to grow up in the hospitality industry, as her parents owned a Motel on the coast of Maine for 35 years.  Matt spent the last 30 years in the corporate retail setting, working as a creative director for many specialty brands.  His knowledge of business and his eye for detail in design, coupled with Lynn's hospitality experience, will surely be a benefit to the Noble House moving forward.  The Noble House Inn is a dream come true for the couple!

The 1903 Winburn M. Staples House

Winburn M. Staples was born on February 8, 1855, at the family home on top of Baker Hill in Naples, Maine. After the civil war, the family moved to the Daniel Perley farm in South Bridgton. In school, Winburn excelled in wrestling and the cold months' winter sports. Winburn married his Bridgton Academy classmate, Idalyn M. Gove. Construction on the home began in 1901. The Parlor grand piano was the center of much entertaining throughout the home's history, and it is believed to be original to the home. It was built circa 1898 by the  Gildemeester-Kroeger Company of NY.  The home was built by James Mead and Joseph Witham.

In 1945 or 1946, Dr. Fred Gilbert "Gib" Noble bought the house, paying $8000 cash with another $1000 for the furniture, linens, paintings, and the parlor grand, still here in the living room. The Nobles raised their family in this house, living here for about 30 years.

In 2001, a movie was filmed here entitled, "Baby It's Cold Outside".
