When I was fist introduced to Urban Cowboy it seemed like the perfect concept : a bread and breakfast smack in the middle of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, providing a transformative, comfortable experience away from the chaos of the city with a cabin built in it's back yard. I had to try it.
Humai and I booked the cabin and planned a little staycation weekend. As soon as we arrived we were met by Lauren, the newly appointed caretaker, who welcomed us with warmth and urged us to join her for a drink once we were all settled in. As soon as you walk into the cabin you forget that you are in Brooklyn, it's beautifully curated with the right furniture and decor. We didn't even unpack before we started posing around taking photos... it was hard not to.
The rest of the weekend was spent hanging around relaxing, being offered many drinks and snacks, meeting and befriending other guests that we staying there, and forgetting about real life for a bit. I don't do very many strong recommendations on this blog but if you are traveling to NY or are from here and just want to get away for a bit you have to try Urban Cowboy... oh and don't forget to sign the guestbook.
