Admiral Sims’ House

Bed and Breakfast Hotel & Apartment Vacation Rentals
in Newport, Rhode Island

Admiral Sims’ House on Catherine St and on Mill St in Newport, Rhode Island are lovely Victorian homes offering Bed and Breakfast (B&B) Hotel and Apartment Lodging.  The Catherine St location was once home to Admiral William Sowden Sims (past President of the Naval War College in Newport Rhode Island) which inspired the name of our accommodations, but now features King beds with private baths, Cable TV, Air-Conditioning, Free off-street parking, Free Wi-Fi, and home-made goodies for breakfast.

The Mill St location offers fully-furnished and equipped one-bedroom and two-bedroom Apartments for long or short term rental.  The open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen with King beds, Cable TV, Air-Conditioning, fireplace, parking and Wi-Fi make a great home base for a vacation or longer!  It’s perfect for government/military per diem travel or for teleworkers who need a change of scenery

The gardens at both locations 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.

Hi all! Hope everyone is hanging in there through this crazy experience.  We’re open for business and look forward to serving you using CDC guidelines and requirements in a way that protects the health and safety of everyone.

  • Our small accommodation reduces the chance of exceeding maximum group limits, but we don’t mind if you prefer to sneak away and have no interaction at all.  In B&B rooms, there’s a table and chairs in each room for private dining.  And we moved furniture so all our outside tables and all our inside tables are 8 feet apart.  
  • People comment on how clean our properties are all the time!  And now we have a super-duper disinfecting cleaning protocol for all guest rooms and common areas using EPA-approved disinfectant.
  • We prefer a face-to-face exchange, but will now enjoy “socially-distanced” coordination through text, phone, email, and notes!  Pick up your sanitized key as we wave at the door.  The new normal?

Thanks for considering us for your stay in Newport!  Please give us a call if you have any questions.
