Accommodations
ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE COLONY IS OUR LODGING CAPABILITY. THERE ARE TWO FULLY FURNISHED APARTMENTS AND THREE FULLY REMODELED VINTAGE TRAVEL TRAILER AVAILABLE FOR RENT ON THE PROPERTY. UNITS CAN BE RENTED SEPARATELY, TOGETHER OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANY OF THE ADJACENT MULTI-USE SPACES THAT MAKE UP THE COLONY. 

All of the existing furnishings at The Colony are included in your rental. We do not provide additional tables, chairs or other furniture for your event. You are welcome to tour the facility to see what you will need to procure for your event. There are a number of rental companies that work at The Colony on a regular basis and are very familiar with the space. 

The property has a parking area that is open to patrons and guests of The Colony. Beyond the capacity of this lot, there is an ample amount of street parking. There is very little residential property in close proximity to the facility, so most of the time the street provides plenty of parking spaces for our guests.
