About Julian Lesser

Hi All,

My name is Julian. I'm an artist living in Queens, NY. I love the energy of NYC and enjoy running around the tall building and loud streets.

Sometimes it gets to be a bit much - which is why I purchased my home in High Falls. High Falls, like NYC, is also a center for arts, right in the middle of the Hudson valley. Unlike NYC, it offers laid back living and beautiful country scenery.

Come visit High Falls (when I'm not enjoying it) and see what the Hudson Valley has to offer!

Happy Travels,

Julian

Beautiful, Clean, Cozy and Chic

  • 5 of 5

The High Falls house was immaculate and lovely. The 4 spacious bedrooms provide comfort for all, the kitchen has everything needed and the setting is lovely. The deck is smallish but the back yard is large and there is a nice fire pit and chairs there.

Perfect spot for a weekend getaway!

Retro Beautiful Getaway Weekender

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice time at the High Falls house for a girls wine weekend. The home was beautiful and immaculate. Everyone raved about it.

Julian is such a pleasure to work with! Would absolutely rent the space again.

(It is a little further from downtown New Paltz than we thought it would be, but had no problem getting cabs for pick up / drop off.)

Beautiful home, tastefully decorated and impeccably clean

  • 5 of 5

I and 5 of my friends recently stayed at Julian’s house for a girl’s weekend. We arrived to find the house well equipped and incredibly clean. Since we have all rented homes before we knew to bring some of our won supplies: A good knife, a good pot, Ziploc bags, aluminum foil etc. and I would always suggest that to any renter. But all in all, the house was gorgeous, comfortable and cozy.

The only negative I heard was that the murphy bed mattress could use some upgrading according to the girls that stayed in that room.

Anyway, we had an amazing time. We plan to make this trip an annual event and definitely hope to rent this home each time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Rosita, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We'll definitely look into the Murphy bed, it's a brand new mattress and everyone says it's comfortable. We can definitely put a nice pillow top on for added comfort. Thanks so much for the comment and we hope to see again next year!

Amazing house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the high falls forest retreat for 2 nights as our base for the Rock the Ridge 50 mile ultra marathon. The house is fantastic! Each of the three bedroom is evenly sized. We found the kitchen well stocked and enjoyed the Netflix/roku setup in the TV room. As previous reviews have stated, the house does have a certain 'mad men' feel to it. The pictures accurately reflect the current condition of the property.

Julian was the perfect host. The info pack explaining check in/checkout procedures doc and local area guide are amongst the best I've seen.

Already planning another trip ;-).

Clean, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Spotless , well-maintained + private property with all the amenities needed for a relaxing weekend in the Hudson Valley. Easy access to New Paltz, Rosedale and many trails; the Culinary Institute and FDR library were only 30 minutes away. The views on the way to New Paltz are so stunning we had to pull over. Julian is quick with communications and provided a great list of restaurants and local things to do that we would have had a hard time finding on our own. Excellent mattresses + bathrooms, overall couldn't be happier with our stay and look forward to coming back.
