A group of friends visited during our girls weekend. Wandered around through the community and checked out the museum, The Inspirational Stump and had some readings by mediums. Very pleasant afternoon!

My girlfriends and I visit Lily Dale every year. It is not far from where we live and makes for a nice one day fun thing to do. I would suggest making an appointment with a Medium prior to your visit. Look on the website for registered Mediums....some have their own websites and you can reserve online. Our costs have...

I spent the last week of August-first week of September in classes at Lily Dale. The atmosphere is incredibly healing, soothing, peaceful, sylvan and restorative. The gate fee enables one to partake of the famous Inspiration Stump, the miraculous Healing Temple, The Forest Temple and the highly inspirational Auditorium service, each day @ 2:30. Stay in the guest houses and... More

A friend and I accompanied my sister who was intrigued by the idea of this place for several years, and was looking forward to a spiritually unique experience. I Remained optimistic in spite of the fact that we got a ticket at a speed trap just before turning onto the street of Lily Dale. Maybe it was the spirits warning... More

Spent one night here with family members. 4 of our group had readings and were pleased with them. We all attended the daily free group readings. This was such a relaxing, peaceful getaway. The whole community is friendly, nice to walk through the narrow streets looking at the beautiful houses. Everyone has flowers planted in their yards. It was beautiful.... More

Lily Dale is an interesting place, even if you have little interest in the science, philosophy and religion of Spiritualism.As the world's largest center for Spiritualism, the Assembly offers opportunities for meditation and demonstrations of clairvoyance. I found a medium, there are many in attendance here,for a half-hour "reading" and came away very impressed. Lynne Wiltsie was recommended and came... More

We've been going to Lily Dale for a few years now and have never been to the Healing Temple. Services are offered twice a day. Someone suggested that we go early because it's so popular, you have to wait in line. There are only so many seats inside. When you enter, it's very peaceful and there is music playing. There...

fun relaxing day to go to for a daily drive with your significant other, very vague general readings I guess you could call them. My experience was "mediums" calling out things such as "I see a motherly figure, could be a grandmother that liked to cook, can anybody take this?" Ahhhhhh yeah, almost everyone in the audience!! LOL

Every now and again we find a unique community that remains a favorite to us, and LilyDale is one of those special places. The community is a cluster of cottages and community buildings surrounded by the Cassadaga Lake. The streets are wide enough for one car to pass but certainly best suited for foot traffic. Holistic, spiritual focus fills the... More
