About New England House
The New England House Bed and Breakfast
is located at 1 Boston Hill Road in the quaint village of Andover, New Hampshire. The five-bedroom farmhouse was built in
1913 and sits on a five-acre wooded lot and boasts pastoral country views, an attached rustic former dairy barn, large
picturesque pond, and oversized in-ground swimming pool.
Innkeepers Chris and Michelle converted this historic farmhouse to a Bed & Breakfast in 2009 after moving their
business from a leased location next to Proctor Academy. The New England House name was chosen after much input from family
and friends and each of the guest rooms is themed after a different New England state.
Amenities include luxurious queen-size beds, private baths, in-room TV-DVD, and wireless Internet.
The New England House has direct access to the Northern
Rail Trail, a converted rail bed offering fantastic hiking, bicycling, and snowmobile use in the winter.
The New England House Bed & Breakfast is the closest lodging to Proctor Academy
– an internationally acclaimed private high school located in Andover and is proud to offer a home away from home to
our visiting Proctor parents.
Andover was originally called New Breton
in honor of those brave men who achieved the capture of Cape Breton in 1745. Most of the original grantees were out of this
expedition. The regimental surgeon was a college friend of John Phillips, founder of the Phillips Andover Academy in Massachusetts
and incorporated Andover, NH in 1779. Internationally acclaimed Proctor Academy was founded in 1848.

About Chris and Michelle
Michelle and Chris started a bed and breakfast simply to be able to spend
every day together. Having a very close relationship themselves, they love to welcome people into their home, and entertain
joyfully. Their combined strengths, talents, and experiences contributed to them becoming fun and efficient Innkeepers, a
livelihood and lifestyle that suit them well. Married in an intimate beach ceremony in the Cayman Islands on June 16th, 2003,
friends and family all comment on the compatibility of the couple, and see their obvious happiness in their time spent together.
All agree, Chris and Michelle should be together in all they do.
Michelle graduated the Maryland Institute College
of Art with a degree in Art Education. She lived and worked in Andover most of her young life, attended Andover Elementary/Middle
School, and worked in a country store off Main Street as a teenager. Most of her large family still lives in the immediate
area. Chris grew up in Pennsylvania, and later moved to Florida, where he spent twenty-five years in the fire and emergency
services obtaining the rank of Chief Officer. Chris is now semi-retired and a happy Innkeeper.
Chris and Michelle hope that the New England House brings
peace of mind and spirit to all who visit.
