Where: Urban Cowboy, Williamsburg Brooklyn

Price: $100-$2000 per night

“The Urban Cowboy Bed & Breakfast is a place where guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends. It is a peaceful oasis in this urban jungle… yet steps to everything one wants out of Williamsburg.” There are four bedrooms in the freestanding townhouse, a cabin in the back yard with a hot tub (we love), pot belly stoves, exposed joists and brick, wide plank rough hewn white pine floors…..things you see when you’re upstate. In the morning, breakfast is delivered from their local hospitality partners, so you have plenty of options. D At night, guests can mingle with the native Brooklynites during the various dinner parties and events hosted by the owner. Keep it cheap by staying in the dream catcher or treat yourself to the full cowboy room.
