    About this property

    Phillips Academy Area Ideal for Families Visiting Campus & Touring New England

    Family-friendly holiday home in Andover with fitness centre
    “I'm so ready to put my feet up! Thank you for giving me a place to do so with my kids…we are happy to be here at The Rum Runner House again!” -- A returning Phillips Academy parent from afar. Rum Runner House is a family-oriented property close to Phillips Academy, Brooks School, Pike School and Merrimack College. The home makes it possible to spend quality time with your student and his/her friends during your visit in a very comfortable & flexible manner. Well-stocked with HDTV, classic books & board games to suit a range of tastes, on-site recreational choices also include table tennis, basketball, street hockey, driveway soccer, bocce and Frisbee, baseball & football toss. Enjoy getting to know your child's friends over a ping pong game, or by sharing nicely grilled steaks out on the fenced-in, brick patio. Have the freedom to spoil them by cooking up favorite family recipes that brings the group as close to your home kitchen as is possible. With the large amount of space, you can arrange with the Academy to welcome your student and friends to spend the night off-campus in 'your home away from home' -- a treat that is especially treasured by students who are themselves a long way from their own families. In addition, The Rum Runner House has become a favorite venue of corporate managers looking for an excellent extended stay property for their valued employees. Such guests have included the New England headquarters of a Presidential campaign, financial executives and performance artisans.

    5/5 Excellent

      Great stay

      Overall we enjoyed our experience and everything was very accommodating.

      5/5 Excellent

        As advertised, and then some

        We stayed here with some friends and family for our nearby wedding. Steve received us warmly and gave us a thorough and helpful tour of the house. It was just perfect for us-- two large bathrooms and a half bath, and the bedrooms were far from the hangout social space so noise wasn't an issue. It would be great to stay in for a wedding, or with family for graduation!

        5/5 Excellent

          Fantastic place

          Owner very responsive and helpful!
