Cabin Fever

A new country B&B … in Brooklyn.

  • 07 May 2014

For years, Brooklynites rocked the bearded woodsman look.

Now, they have their very own log cabin.

More specifically, they have the Urban Cowboy, a “Brooklyn bed and breakfast,” now open for sylvan relaxation.

Oddly not inspired by Travolta’s boot-scootin’ boogie (yet playing off similar affectations), the UC’s a townhouse that’s been stripped to the studs and rebuilt as a woody oasis in Williamsburg’s vinyl-sided surrounds.

And it’s very, very handsome. Check the photos.

The main house features four guest rooms of exposed brick, vaulted ceilings and countrified bric-a-brac.

Plus: a massive communal great room bracketed by rolling garage doors on either end. Therein UC will host communal dinners and, natch, live tunes.

Out back: a free-standing Adirondack-inspired cabin with a wood-burning stove and claw-foot tub that make it real easy to forget you’re within city limits.

Also, a backyard hot tub where you can soak with a cold brew under the night sky.

Ride that bull, Sissy. Ride it.
