Most peaceful place I have been. I will carry my Lily Dale experience with me for the rest of my life. Spiritually powerful, calming and absolutely beautiful. Are the buildings aging? Yes, but that's not why people flock to the Dale. Just go. I went to present a workshop, but I received far more than I gave. Stay up late... More

An interesting collection of buildings and inspiration. I particularly liked the Pilgrim Path which is a maze type walking area to mediate and pray. Lots of cute monuments. Cute area, and no fee to get into Lilydale after the summer season.

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...
