About Us

The Lodge's Story

Three generations of Colby’s have helped build Des Moines neighborhoods. For a family dedicated to maintaining the most exceptional standards in design and construction of homes that means always including the extras that symbolize excellence.

The Colby vision has come full circle with the construction of The Lodge of Ashworth… from young family neighborhoods to a new perspective in senior living communities. The quality has never changed.

The Lodge of Ashworth is locally owned, built and managed by Colby Properties. “We have always felt a special commitment to the community and have emphasized this philosophy at The Lodge Of Ashworth to assure that each resident has high-quality services in comfortable surroundings at an affordable price.”

-The Colby Family
