THE STAYCATIONERS took over Brooklyn’s one and only Western-meets-Adirondack-inspired bed and breakfast for a taste of the great American frontier — minus the cross-country commute. Giddy up, cowboy. You’re in for a wild ride.
VOLUME IV | URBAN COWBOY
THE SPOT: Urban Cowboy | 111 Powers Street, Williamsburg
THE STATS: Four rooms, one cabin, and a helluva parlor.
PERFECT FOR: The midnight rider in all of us.
No need to drive upstate for the great outdoors, folks — the oasis that is Urban Cowboy lies just minutes from Manhattan, a mere two stops into Brooklyn on the L train. We suspect it wouldn’t take too long by horse, either.
Like a true bed & breakfast, Urban Cowboy’s five accommodations each have their own distinct character — here’s the breakdown:
THE DREAM CATCHER | From $150/night
A single occupancy lair for the lone ranger.
THE PEACE PIPE | From $225/night
A serene, earth-toned queen room with sky-high ceilings.
THE VISION QUEST | From $250/night
Exposed brick, pitched cathedral ceilings, and bright white accents give this queen suite a modern feel with a country twist. We don’t hate the fireplace, either.
THE LION’S DEN | From $325/night
The name says it all. This master suite boasts a king bed, en suite bath, his & hers sinks, the works.
KANOONO CABIN | From $450/night
Calling all Calamity Janes: we’ve got news for you. This Adirondack-style cabin is fully decked out with a potbelly stove, claw foot tub, king size bed, and antlers galore.
THE STAYCATIONERS set up shop in the cabin for obvious reasons. With the fire ablaze and Rekorderlig abrewin’, a staycay of wild proportions ensued.
Each of Urban Cowboy’s bookings include breakfast (that’s right, partner) as well as access to shared amenities, including the ultra-homey parlor floor, back patio, front porch, and hot tub/sauna. You bet your bottom dollar THE STAYCATIONERS will be backyard regulars come the warmer months. You should, too.
While our Haute Hippie-clad STAYCATIONERS couldn’t bear to leave the comfort of Kanoono, the neighborhood watering hole called their names. The Blind Barber’s bearded barmen and brand new cocktail list welcomed them with open arms as they skipped the hot towel shave and went straight for the rebel soldier. This fine establishment’s cleverly coiffed cocktails and all-day grub are perfect for the weary traveler — especially one who could use a good groom after a hard day’s work at the Cowboy. That wood ain’t gonna chop itself, now is it?
