I heard about the Monday night circles but couldn't find much information about it. The circles take place from the end of June thru the end of August. My sister, two friends and I decided to go one Monday evening. We got there about 6:15 (after 6:00 the gate fee is reduced to $6 from $12.) There was already quite... More

This is for those who travel to lily dale or for those set up appointments by phone. Do not call Janice Dreshman. I found for 105 dollars she tried asking for more information than she provided. I do believe in the gift but think she exaggerated hers. She may be a good person with other gifts but she needs to... More

I wish more of you would reveal who you had a reading with. This certainly helps when booking a reading. My husband and myself have been several times for readings . I just loved my reading withGerta . She was right on target. My husband had a reading with her and was not impressed. I have had a reading with... More

Beautiful grounds. Once you drive thru the main gate, you take a step back in time! People are friendly there! Spiritualism is the main topic there. The shops and restaurants are open late June through Labor Day. During this time there are numerous workshops, guest speakers, mediums and special events to attend. There are several guest houses to lodge at... More

Although Lillydale is an actual place with quaint houses, hotels and residents, it really is a place for spirituality. Spiritualism is technically a religion, but it really is a philosophy of Love thy neighbor. People come here of all beliefs, there is something to be gained for any that want it. Mediums and psychics are the main residents, and conduct... More

My first time to Lily Dale. A long ride in the car but well worth it and the ride along the Southern Tier Expressway itself is quite scenic. I went with people who have been going there every year for over 20 years so that helped. The Lake View Guest House is very lovely. My bedroom with a view of... More

Honestly, I didn't know what I was looking for when I got there. It's a quaint community full of mediums. Some of the housing is quaint, but is brought down by the myriad of surrounding modern homes. The cost of purchasing items at the stores are high. I actually found the stores in Salem, MA to be much more reasonable.... More

I posted a forum question here four years ago but didn't make the trip until this month. Finally! Although I am not a member of the Spiritualist church, I have been interested in their community since reading some books and meeting various people who go to Lily Dale for workshops and special events. I really enjoyed looking at the old... More

Teachers, store owners, restaurants, hotels were all kind and helpful! The area is not only for learning about spiritualism, but also provides fun and enjoyment too!

Definitely visit in the afternoon when readings are done here. It is a really spiritual place and very relaxing and calming.
