I've written before about how much I love being a resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. What really makes the neighborhood are the multitude of clever small businesses. Urban Cowboy B&B is the perfect example. Opened last spring by Lyon Porter, you'd never expect to find such a fashion-forward bed and breakfast behind its unassuming exterior on Powers Street. Upon arriving though, guests are quickly swept up in what Porter describes as "an industrial Williamsburg-slash-Adirondack-slash-cowboy sensibility" and the communal, down-to-earth vibe.
The renovated townhouse has just four rooms, ranging from the "Lone Ranger" single-bed option to the "Kanoono Cabin," which has a king bed, clawfoot bathtub and a separate entrance. All rooms include access to the shared parlor where breakfast is served each morning, as well as the shared hot tub (a real novelty in Brooklyn) and the front porch. And, should you have your tribe traveling with you, a complete rent out of the hotel is available starting at $2,000/night.
