The Colony has several shared facilities including a swimming pool, beach access for kayaking and swimming, a clay tennis court, two large fields for outside activities, a play area for children, a recreation hall, and a private Dining Hall. When the Dining Hall is operational, (The Colony has had a tough time keeping it staffed) it serves fabulous food a few nights per week, along with a Sunday brunch. (A Dining Hall minimum fee is a requirement for staying in the Auburn Colony, of course, only if the Hall is open at the time of your rental ! ) There is also a dress code for dinners, and brunch is come as you are casual.
