Certificate of Excellence
Two great locations (73 Catherine St and 98 Mill St) offering bright, spacious rooms with private baths, big flat screen cable TV, air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi and free parking, and home-baked goodies for breakfast each morning. Easy walk to Newport center. Kid & pet rooms available. Lovely garden, sun porch, and quiet outside sitting areas. Catherine St was built in 1883 for Francis Jones of New York and named for Admiral William Sowden Sims (past President of the Naval War College) who lived here in the 1920s - an easy walk to the beach and Cliff Walk. Mill St is an 1812 Victorian especially close to Thames and Bowen/Bannister Wharfs.

My husband and I took a getaway to Newport. We had a wonderful time at Admiral house. The owners are very attentive and went out of their way to accommodate us. The property is in walking distance to all the stores and restaurants and historical downtown. Will definitely plan to

My wife and I had a great stay at the 98 Mill St. property. It had the feel of a quaint B&B, but with large rooms and modern amenities. It has a great location, very close to all the restaurants downtown.

The family that runs the Admiral Sims is the best and nicest we have encountered so far. Love Newport and plan to stay again and again. The cleanliness, and professionalism is by far the best i have seen. Thank you for your great hospitality, you do it right.

The room was spacious and immaculate. We stayed in the Captain’s Suite, which could easily accommodate a group. Our hosts were so sweet and welcoming; we really enjoyed chatting with them. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Will definitely be back!

Your review mentions that the pet-friendly suite you stayed in recently was in a different location and was recently remodeled. Could you clarify for me if the pet-friendly suite is in a different house other than the large, older one that is in the photos? One of the appeals of this property for me is the large, old-fashioned house. Also, is it on the third floor, or how many sets of stairs does one have to go up and down (not a problem for me and my husband, but could be for our dogs)?
Thanks for thinking of us here at Admiral Sims' House on Catherine St and Mill St! We have two locations with pet-friendly rooms in each. Both are old Victorian homes (Catherine St is 1883 and Mill St is 1812) and both have 3 floors, but not to worry as both homes also have pet-friendly rooms on the 2nd floor... and Mill St has a room on 1st floor. Give us a call so we match you with the perfect room and perfect house! I think you're looking at the Catherine St house because we just painted the Mill St house and haven't posted a photo yet.
