Ford’s Colony is a gated community with a 24-hour security staff. It was designed and built along roads that meander in and around a landscape of ponds, wetlands, and woodlands, and offers a variety of homes from condominiums and townhomes to cottages and executive residences. The community attracts families and individuals of all ages and backgrounds from areas across the nation and around the world.
Ford’s Colony residents engage in a variety of activities – within the community’s gates and throughout the surrounding community. Ford’s Colony offers community recreation facilities, an exercise studio, two community pools – one with a pool slide, hard and clay tennis courts, bocce ball and pickleball courts, a nature trail, and walking and bicycle paths. In addition to amenities offered by the Ford’s Colony Homeowners Association, Ford’s Colony Country Club’s three golf courses are intertwined throughout the development. (Country club membership is optional.) The Marriott Corporation also operates a vacation ownership resort onsite – Marriott’s Manor Club.
The “Colony” offers residents an active lifestyle which includes opportunities to participate in over 60 sanctioned clubs and activities, numerous social groups, and book clubs. The community also offers activities for the younger crowd, including youth tennis and swim team, art classes and holiday festivities. Many of our residents are active volunteers, both inside our gates and with organizations across the Historic Triangle. Find out more about us with Ford's Colony Facts.
Management, maintenance, and care of Ford’s Colony is the responsibility of the Ford’s Colony Homeowners Association (the “FCHOA”). A Board comprised of seven elected directors manages the FCHOA in accordance with its bylaws and state statutes. The Board employs a management company to maintain and operate the Association and its numerous facilities. Residents can participate in the governance of FCHOA by volunteering to run for a position on the Board of Directors or applying to serve on one (or more) of the 13 committees that support the Board. These volunteers bring expertise to the operation from a wide range of career and volunteer experiences.
The Mission of the FCHOA is to promote the common interests of its Members in the Development and to provide for the management, maintenance, and care of the real estate known as Ford's Colony at Williamsburg.
