This was my second trip to Lilydale....I had been before in July of 2013. It was weird that I went exactly the same day, two years ago. It was nice...I traveled with four other persons. Well all had readings. I thought I would get the best reading of all because I had read reviews on Willa White, how she was... More

My mom and I visited Lily Dale in July and had a great time. As soon as we drove through the gates the calm soothed us. We stayed 2 nights and were busy the whole time but were still completely relaxed. We each had readings with mediums and went to the services at the forest temple and inspiration stump. We... More

My review title is "Peaceful" because that's what Lily Dale is in one word. Peaceful. I make the effort to return each year (this is my 3rd year) and since I lost my father in May, this will be the first year I visit twice. Lily Dale has something for everyone; a serene setting and uplifting energy. This is the... More

If you are looking for a place that is peaceful and serene, Lily Dale is it. We loved the experiences that we shared there as a family. In fact, we loved it so much that this was a return trip for us. Everyone there is so welcoming. We have always come during the summer season and have loved both the... More

we had heard about this place for a long time, decided to visit, scheduled readings in advance. Because it was off-season, there was no issue with parking, but also the bookstore was not open. This is a pretty town of mostly Victorian homes, on the lake. We both felt the readings we received (we each had 2 readings, from 2... More

Lily Dale is a unique little village in Upstate New York which is geared toward parapsychology, mediums, and the development of these skills as well as educating the public and enhancing and honing the skills of working mediums. We visited after lunch one day on our way to the Lake Erie shore in Pennsylvania. At that time, it was $10... More

This quaint little village in the middle of nowhere was a nice experience. The 12 dollar per person entry fee was a bit much. We went to a "stump meeting" had lunch there and walked around the village. Lunch was standard fare and pricey. If you are into it, you can have a private "reading" for 65 to 120 dollars... More

Quaint village on the lake. Stroll the narrow streets, explore the museum and library. Enjoy the food at several sites on the grounds. Take in a spirit message service run in an outdoor setting by mediums. Attend a traditional Spiritualist church service each afternoon at 2:30 in the historic auditorium. Susan B Anthony spoke from the same platform that is... More

Are you looking for something different to do? This is well worth it! Most people going there are seeking answers. I wasn't, I went with a group as we are graduates of a mediumship development course. I did a couple of awesome workshop (Mundras and astrology), went to the healing temple, the library, the inspiration stump and the forest temple.... More
