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

I went to the Lily Dale assembly for the first time with my sisters. I attended several classes and enjoyed each of them. I had the pleasure of attending Gerta Lestocks "last class" before retiring. and had the most awesome adventure. Coming home I found myself grumpy because I had to leave. Quaint homes with many mediums some of the... More

We enjoyed our two day visit to Lily Dale. It is a quirky little town with cute Victorian houses on a small tranquil lake. It kind of reminded me of a combination of Woodstock, NY, our son's sleep away camp and the campground in Oaks Bluff on Martha's Vineyard. Not all the houses are perfectly kept up, but that was...

This was my second visit to the Lily Dale Community. I have found both visits to be very peaceful and tranquil. It really is a community untouched by the rest of the world. My friends and I are making it an all ladies female getaway trip to reconnect to ourselves and our lost loved ones every year. The visit is... More

I love the Lily Dale Assembly. The town has a wonderful vibe, everyone is very friendly and the Healing Service is an experience not to be missed. An authentic and uplifting place to visit.

First, if you are a "non-believer" and are going to confirm your non-belief.....STAY HOME! On the other hand, if you are a believer or are at least open minded enough to consider there are things in the universe you do not understand but would like to learn more about, then Lily Dale is a place you absolutely need to visit....

Lily Dale is I believe the oldest Spiritualist community in the US. It has great history which can be found in the museum. The houses are mostly Victorian and you must be a Spiritualist to own one. There are about 40 residential mediums who do private readings and public appearances too. All summer long there are courses offered on a... More
