This bed-and-breakfast showcases the dream Brooklyn life: a freestanding townhouse, a quiet and cozy backyard, and a front porch for watching New York stroll by. With wide-plank pine floors, exposed brick walls, industrial accents, and a nod to the Wild West (or cowboy life) in the textiles and art, this modern hideaway is just as stylish as the borough it calls home. Extras abound, from the hot tub in the backyard to the shared parlor floor of the townhouse complete with a pot belly stove where breakfast is served in the morning. It has a convivial spirit—there will be plenty of opportunities to mingle with your fellow guests—or you can reserve the cabin in the backyard, complete with a kitchen, for a true private escape.

The Urban Cowboy B&B is in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg, though not right in the heart at the Bedford Avenue L stop. A little deeper into Brooklyn—that’s away from the East River—this B&B is closest to the Lorimer Street or Graham Ave stops on the L train. It’s an ideal pick for visitors who want to soak up a bit of the local Brooklyn scene, away from major tourist attractions. The dining here is great, including Okinomi, where traditional Japanese breakfast is served; it transforms to Yuji Ramen by night (with an interesting tasting menu on Saturdays). Bars, restaurants, and coffee shops are plentiful, and other appealing Brooklyn neighborhoods are easily accessible.
