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!

Have been going here for years. Quiet, meditative place. The "Stump" is an interesting experience, hosted by a medium who may or may not have a message for individuals. I recently visited with a medium and wasamazed and gratefulfor the specific messages from friends and loved ones. I gave no information prior to receiving the. Messages and was amazed by... More

I very much enjoyed my time at Lily Dale. This trip was a time to explore the community, spending time in a beautiful place and retreat from hectic life, although there were numerous courses being offered. Lily Dale is the largest Spiritualist community in the world. It's a very peaceful and relaxing place. I thoroughly enjoyed walking along the Cassadaga... More

Spent the day and had a reading from one of the resident mediums. I enjoyed myself but was a little disconcerted that only 2 mediums gave names to those on the other side who wanted to loved ones messages. I stayed at the Llewellyn Hotel which was great, no air conditioning but next to the lake. Worth the trip.

Lily Dale is one of those places everyone needs to experience. I came several years ago as a skeptic and left with great appreciation for mediumship and the people who generously serve the guests who travel here. A few must-dos include going to Inspiration Stump for daily message services with the mediums, a coffee on the porch of Lucy's and... More

Enjoyed an overnight with friends to see John White - medium. There are a multitude of mediums that live on the grounds where you can sign up that day but highly recommend to make an appointment especially if there is someone in particular you would like to see. Several little cafes to eat at and a few souvenir shops on... More

Suspend judgement and go visit. The peaceful healing environment is truly a gift for our tech weary souls. Should you want a reading, its important to select a reputable medium. Dr. Jan Dreshman is an exceptional medium - respectful and inspired. While Lily Dale has some very gifted mediums, a few are charlatans. Janice is the real deal. Another excellent... More

Every year my sisters and I make the trip to Lily Dale Assembly. We enjoy walking through the town seeing the updates that are constantly taking place, the walk to Inspirational Stump is always a must for us and especially and after dark stroll.
