Admiral Sims' House - Bed and Breakfast Hotel Lodging in Newport, Rhode Island

Admiral Sims' House on Catherine St and Mill St in Newport Rhode Island are lovely Victorian homes offering Bed and Breakfast (B & B) Hotel Lodging. The original house was once home to Admiral William Sowden Sims (past President of the Naval War College in Newport Rhode Island), but now features King beds with private bath, Cable TV, Air-Conditioning, Free off-street parking, Free Wi-Fi, and home-made goodies for breakfast. The gardens are private....yet, just minutes away, you're in the center of Newport's many activities, historical attractions, fine restaurants, ocean beach, and unique shops. At the end of each day, you'll return to sleep in quiet, historic settings. GREAT rooms - GREAT walkable location - yummy home-baked goodies for breakfast!

Check out the renovation!

To our dismay, we discovered this old house had clapboard under the shingles.  So over the spring, we have been bringing it back to its original glory!

This is what we found under the shingles.


And here are we today...almost done painting the front of house with temporary front porch (no more yucky 1999 front entrance)

Don't be surprised by the new (OLD) look of the Admiral Sims' House!


And we have other exciting news - we added another location to the Admiral Sims' enterprise - 98 Mill St.  Wonderful location, brand new room renovation, same free wi-fi and off-street parking.  Hope everyone likes it as much as we do!
