Why We Like It

Set away from New York’s famous landmarks, this bed and breakfast is all about experiencing genuine neighborhood life. We love the renovated townhouse setting, the fun communal spaces, and a convivial spirit fostered by the kind innkeepers. It’s a true introduction to the style and quality of life in Brooklyn.

Set in a renovated 100-year-old townhouse, Williamsburg’s only bed and breakfast combines the neighborhood’s renegade spirit with an eye for design. Common spaces include an open-plan living room and kitchen with original wood beams, exposed brick, and a potbelly stove. Friendly innkeepers are the cherry on top of a pretty property.

Airy rooms have wood floors, brick walls, exposed beam ceilings, and original townhouse features like fireplaces. Antique travel trunks are a nice design accent.

The freestanding cabin out back is an urban lumberjack’s fantasy, with a big bed covered in Pendleton blankets, an antler chandelier, wood-burning stove, and claw-foot tub.

Instead of a lobby, this bed and breakfast has a cozy living room with exposed brick walls, a central fireplace, and tufted couches. A garage-style door opens to give the living room an al fresco feel during the warm months. A communal table and sleek kitchen are also part of the common space.

The backyard is home to an outdoor, common-use hot tub.


A breakfast buffet is served daily, including local specialties like doughnuts by Dough, yogurt made in Red Hook, fresh bagels, and jams from upstate New York.

Getting Around

Located on Powers Street, this bed and breakfast is a short walk away from two L train stops, the Lorimer Street Station and the Graham Avenue Station. The L train connects quickly to Manhattan.

Taxis and Uber are available in the neighborhood, but in lesser quantity than other areas.
