We hold our rooms for four weeks, giving time for the group leader to receive and return the group contract and deposit. All contracts and deposits not returned within the four-week timeframe are considered canceled, null, and void. After a signed contract is returned with a deposit, it is considered binding.
Without both a signed contract and deposit, America’s Keswick will not hold space for a group. Six months prior to your event, your contract is finalized. After this, you will be held to the financial agreement stated in your contract.
A guest group can cancel or change their contract at any point up to six months prior to the contracted event. However, the group agrees to forfeit their deposit in doing so.
After the six-month date, cancellation or reduction of a contract is possible ONLY IF AMERICA’S KESWICK IS ABLE TO ARRANGE A REPLACEMENT GROUP GENERATING COMPARABLE INCOME. If a replacement group is arranged, then any deposits will be forfeited, and no other charges will be incurred. If no replacement group is found, the group is under obligation to pay 90% of the contracted amount.
