Robert Winchester, president and COO of Waterford Hotel Group, said the company looked forward to working with Phillips Academy.
"The Andover Inn is rich in history and charm, and we are enthusiastic about the future of this important landmark," he said.
The inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Inns.
