Brooklyn Bed & Breakfast Provides A Western-Themed Oasis From Hipsters

culture

The Urban Cowboy Bed & Breakfast is a "peaceful oasis" in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, complete with four guest rooms, a free-standing cabin with a wood burning stove.

Walking into the Urban Cowboy Bed & Breakfast, one might be forgiven for thinking that they are in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee or in a cabin in the Rockies, not in Brooklyn.

From the Aztec print throw blankets to the wood burning stove, this B&B; is designed to take visitors away from the hipster streets of Williamsburg and transport them to a ‘peaceful oasis’ where ‘strangers become friends’ – a novel idea in a city where people avoid eye contact on public transport.


The design is luxury-rustic – there are four guestrooms, each light, bright and airy with only a hint of cowboy. Then there is the free-standing cabin in the back – here is where you really escape the reality of Brooklyn into a cabin with a wood burning stove, antler chandelier and claw-footed bathtub.

On the site, its ethos is explained as being ‘luxury with a local sensibility’. Founder Lyon Porter wanted to create a community that celebrates local Brooklyn fare while giving guests a quiet retreat away from the hubbub of New York City’s most buzzing borough. There is the promise of dinner parties and evening events to ‘mingle with native Brooklynites’. Even the breakfast menu is the perfect co-mingling of urban and cowboy – guests are given the choice of an almond croissant with biscuits and gravy or the lighter (more Brooklyn option) of an organic green juice.


The bed and breakfast is a combination of country hospitality with a Brooklynite’s sense of style.
The townhouse definitely stands apart from the rest of the area’s real estate, which tends to be dominated by big real estate condos and jam-packed lofts.
