Why does your calendar say that the week I’d like to reserve is available, but I cannot reserve it?

Between the time we email a contract to potential vacationers and the time we receive their deposit to hold their reservation, we leave the calendar open so as not to turn away potential vacationers if a group cancels or does not get their contract back to us in a timely manner. For this reason, we strongly suggest faxing or scanning/emailing the contract back and paying the deposit with a credit card.
