3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

This is a very unique location to visit... open your mind and heart up to what you cannot see with your eyes alone. The private reading I had by Jackie Avis was spot on and the free experiences occurring throughout the day can be mind blowing. I say take a chance and experience something new if you have never made... More

Peaceful, meditative retreat for a day. Get there early to grab parking. Wonderful to walk around and gather thoughts.

Lily Dale is an amazing place and experience, if you understand and appreciate why you are going. It is not for everyone and there can be walking up slight hills and in woods. If this is your first time, understand many of the mediums take cash only and it can be expensive. Look at the Lily Dale website and if... More

My boyfriend for weeks has been wanting to do this "ghost wall" at lily dale, so we finally went tonight. We assumed it would be a walk through the grounds with a medium and seeing if the medium could pick up any spirits. Instead, it was a historic walk through the night just talking about certain people, and houses... no... More

To begin, an incredible place to visit. Benefited from a Healing Service, walked the Fairy Trail and left a token, paid our respects at the Pet Cemetery, and felt the power of the Stump. I booked a reading with a Medium, Willa White, four months in advance. I see now why she books so quickly. The first words out of... More

As many of the reviews state, so peaceful and beautiful. I believe you will get the experience you're expecting here, whatever your beliefs may be. While I have always believed, my openness has vastly increased since my first trip. My confidence level in myself has also improved. We have taken several classes in addition to the daily activities and have... More

Have been coming to LD for the past 20+ years, and it never disappoints. As you enter the grounds you can feel the spiritual energy buzzing, and you instantly feel at home. This self contained city includes a library, museum, post office, fire department, cafe's, stores, and so much more. Come for the education, leave with so much more!
