About Colony Cove.

Colony Cove is an active, age-qualified community in the quiet town of Ellenton.

The community prides itself on its many amenities, which we think make life at Colony Cove that much more convenient, comfortable, and fun. You can take a swim in one of our five heated pools, boat at the marina, dance at one of the clubhouses, work on a woodworking project, or take a bus trip to the beach. Want a work out? We’ve got a great health and fitness center and tennis courts.

In the mood to relax? You might head out to the fishing pier, or check a book out of our lovely library and take lunch to the picnic pavilion. Colony Cove has something for everyone.

The residents of Colony Cove enjoy the convenience of nearby shopping, including a large outlet mall with all major stores. We are close to restaurants, beaches, golf courses, art galleries, and museums. Ellenton is a quaint, friendly town that offers a myriad of opportunities for recreation, leisure, culture, and the arts. If you are looking for comfortable, affordable living that comes with year-round sunshine, Colony Cove could be for you.

Are you a "critter" person? Colony Cove is one of the few, if not the only, mobile home community in Florida that is "pet friendly". Dogs, and cats, are not only allowed, they are encouraged. The "Cove" does not have the normal 20 lb. weight limit for dogs, as most communities do. The "Cove" features a large, fenced, dog park, located directly on the Manatee River, with separate areas for large and small dogs. This dog park is maintained by the community (and by members of the community Pet Owners Club) and is sprayed on a regular basis for fleas and ticks. In addition, there are numerous dog walking areas located throughout the community that are kept stocked with "poop bags" by the Cove. Of course, there are also trash cans for the pet waste and they are emptied on a regular basis.
