Imagine a bed and breakfast with pot belly stoves, antler chandeliers, claw foot tubs and rough hewn white pine floors. Now imagine what that same bed and breakfast would look like in the middle of Brooklyn.
The B&B you envisioned probably isn’t what Lyon Porter created in a restored Williamsburg townhouse. Porter opened up his Urban Cowboy Bed and Breakfast a few months ago with a simple mission – have guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends.
A large parlor with comfortable couches, an open modern kitchen and an industrial-style table work together to encourage conversation among guests. There are four bedrooms in the main house with wood beam ceilings and minimal vintage furnishings.
But the detached Adirondack-inspired cabin behind the house is where Lyon went all-out with his Western theme (pictured above). The warm textures and lodge-like vibe make it the perfect place to spend a snowy weekend in New York City.
