Andover ABC Bed & Breakfast Gears Up!

Through the innovative ABC Bed & Breakfast program, friends and board members of ABC have long been opening their homes to parents who travel from all over the world to Phillips Academy to enjoy Parent’s Weekend and Graduation festivities. Families stay close to campus enjoying the informal hospitality of a home-stay and support the ABC program with a donation to cover their room and board. Board, in this case, is a light continental breakfast provided by the host family. Most of the homes are within walking distance to campus. The program has been a huge success over the years, raising close to $4,000.00 for the program at it’s peak. Now ABC hopes to reenergize the program, adding new host homes and reaching out to PA parents looking for unique accommodations in the Andover area.

New program head Martha Grant matches hosts and guests. If you are interested in becoming a Bed & Breakfast partner, Martha can be reached by e-mail:, phone: 978-474-8017, or mail: 5 Alden Road, Andover, MA 01810.
