Newport Bed and Breakfasts

Admiral Sims' Whitehouse

Many Newport bed and breakfasts possess rich histories and prominent former residents. The Admiral Sims' Whitehouse is no exception.

This Victorian home was once the residence of Admiral William Sowden Sims, a former President of the Naval War College. The Admiral commanded all U.S. Naval forces operating in Europe during World War I.
