About Donna Ankenbauer

We have traveled all around the world and love experiencing a home style stay when we travel, so we in return would like to give that experience to travelers visiting Grand Mesa and Cedaredge. We are Cedaredge natives and spend most of our time in a cabin on Grand Mesa. As hosts we would also offer to assist you with scheduling activities or giving you advice and where to go and what to see while staying in our home.

Donna Ankenbauer purchased this house in 2006

Why Donna Ankenbauer chose Southwest

Our home is in beautiful Cedaredge, with mild climate year round, but just minutes from Grand Mesa. The elevation change from 6,100' to 10,500' between town and the Mesa can make a big difference during the seasons. During the winter months, when the Mesa may be under 6 plus feet of snow, Cedaredge often has no snow and you may even be able to golf a round! Cedaredge is warm during the summer evenings, compared to the cold that you would experience camping or staying on Grand Mesa during the night. If you like to see deer, they are all around our property. We personally love the activities in the area, ATVing, snowmobiling, hiking, biking, fly fishing, ice fishing and rafting. Plus a little Nordic skiing and snow shoeing! Powderhorn is just 40 miles away if you like to downhill ski.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our home while here on vacation. As we were golfing, we first saw it under construction. When we saw the large logs being installed to make the back deck, we knew it was our dream home and that it was time to move back to Cedaredge. In the evening after a day of play, it is so relaxing to sit on the back porch, admiring the trees, flowers, deer and serenity while watching the sun set over grand mesa.

Beautiful home away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous home with high-end furnishings that we did not expect to find in Cedaredge. The combination of this home and the idyllic, very peaceful surroundings makes for an unbeatable stay in Western Colorado. We really appreciated Donna's in-person orientation to all the features of the house. Highly recommended, and we will definitely be back in the future!

Great Place--lots of deer.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I based out of this home for 8 days in August and thorougly enjoyed it. The home is beautiful, extremely well designed, well equipped and in a fantastic location. We loved the kitchen/living area, but spent most of our time on the huge back patio. We were greeted by deer all day long, every day we were there. One eve we counted 12 in the yard next door.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home in Cedaredge. The deer are why they use to call the golf course Deer Creek Village. They are very plentiful. I hope you had a chance to see the 7 large bucks that frequent the area. Come see us again!

Perfect for a weekend gateway and long stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. Donna and Mike are great hosts. They even met us at the house when we arrived to show us how to operate different features of their extraordinary backyard. The house is in the immaculate condition, designed with attention to every detail. Pictures just don’t do it justice. We will definitely come back and recommend this place to our friends.
