Highs & Lows

  • Uber Instagram-friendly. It’s hard to find an angle that isn’t photogenic at this spot.

  • The breakfast spread is pretty epic, delivered every morning from a local bakery. Think croissants, muffins, bagels, fruit and granola with a variety of tea leaves and brewed coffee.

  • Lyon, the owner, makes you feel like a part of the family and opens his door whenever you feel like popping back for coffee.

  • If you stay in the cabin the WiFi connection doesn’t quite reach you, unfortunately.

Important Bits

  • Type

    An urban bed and breakfast.

  • Vibe

    Rustic and wholesome, fusing a cowboy and cabin aesthetic while still feeling modern and sleek.

  • Location

    Conveniently nestled in Williamsburg, but far enough away from the touristy, Bedford Avenue grid.

  • Rooms

    4 bedrooms + a cabin.

  • Music

    No music.

  • Year Opened


  • Designed By

    Lyon Porter & Renee Mee

  • Pool/Gym

    No, but a pretty steamy hot tub that you can use until midnight (beware, the neighbors can peek over and see you).

  • Restaurant


  • Bar

    Mmm…not quite. But the owner, Lyon, has his booze out in the lobby if you want to sneak a drink.

  • Wifi

    Sure do, and it’s free.

  • Children

    Probably best at home unless you’re renting out the entire cabin.

  • Price

    Reasonably priced for a room in the house, but you should probably just splurge on the outside cabin for $400 a night.
