The Lodge of Ashworth

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

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


I like the people here as well as the atmosphere. I have the opportunity every day to maintain my privacy or to be with people who enjoy life and with whom I have a mutual interest. We share our travel experiences, shop together, or work and plan together.

I’ve come to the realization that Lodge members truly care for each other. My experiences seems to shoot down the theory that growing older necessarily means growing lonely.

The Lodge of Ashworth is located in the heart of West Des Moines on historic Ashworth road.  A true picturesque setting surrounded by mature trees provides seclusion and privacy while our location is only a few minutes away from, Valley Junction, Jordon Creek and Valley West Malls, and 10 minutes to downtown Des Moines.

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 Fountain West to assure that each resident has quality services in comfortable surroundings at an affordable price.”
