This is the best retreat place that I have ever been looking for. It is very clean everywhere in the center. It is very quiet and peaceful place for you to sit down to think about how great is our Lord. Also it is a fun place to play with family and friends with different kinds of sports. I highly recommend this place for any Christian church retreat or just family camp. 👍👌🙏😇

America's Keswick is a beautiful scenic spot to relax, renew and reconnect with the Lord. I've been going there for the past 20 years to the Womens (Girls) Weekend third weekend in October. It is an annual destination for my family and friends. The staff at Americas Keswick are so lovely. LOVE THE THRIFT SHOP!!!

Keswick has been a special part of my life since I was a very young child. It's a great place for a quiet getaway, a family vacation, or a church retreat. With a variety of day events and multi-day conferences, there's something for everyone. Keswick has gifted speakers, great musicians, comfortable accommodations, delicious meals, and plenty of activities in a beautiful and peaceful setting. It's definitely a place where God speaks to hearts and transforms lives!

Canceling or reducing a contract after the six-month frame is possible ONLY IF AMERICA’S KESWICK IS ABLE TO ARRANGE A REPLACEMENT GROUP GENERATING COMPARABLE INCOME. If a replacement group is booked, then any deposits will be forfeited, and no other charges will be incurred. If no replacement group is arranged, the group is obligated to pay 90% of the contracted amount
