in the heart of buzzing williamsburg a beautiful oasis has been created that marries the aesthetic of the american wild west with soothing home comfort. set up by real estate professional lyon porter, the urban cowboy bed & breakfast clearly is a labour of love, featuring four bedrooms in a freestanding townhouse, a wooden cabin in the back yard, and an equally cool communal space. the decor of urban cowboy has been created by porter himself, in collab with interior designer renée mee, and betrays a keen eye for detail and an exceptional sense of style. each room has a different yet equally welcoming vibe, featuring carefully selected furnishings, props and colour schemes. from the single-bed dream catcher and the peace pipe with its huge cathedral ceilings, to the rather grand adirondack-style kanoono cabin, urban cowboy fully delivers as a stylish hideaway in williamsburg's urban jungle.
as said, there's a communal space in the form of an open parlour floor that boasts operable garage doors on both ends. a true stunner, the homey interior presents an eclectic mix of furniture pieces, pot belly stoves, and white pine floors against a backdrop of exposed joists and brick. further enhancing the local bed & breakfast feel, urban cowboy sources tasty breakfast produce from local hospitality partners, while in the evenings guests can mingle with the neighbourhood crowd at various dinner parties and events that porter hosts on the premises. and urban cowboy being very much a rare gem in new york city's hospitality landscape, it's also possible to rent the entire place for yourself and your best friends. location: 111 powers street [williamsburg east].
