David and Lavonne are retired educators. David was a University Professor in Community & Regional Planning. Lavonne was a Primary School teacher. They both enjoy skiing and for their first 14 years of retirement they taught skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho.
When they retired (2000) they sold their family home in Eugene, Or. and moved to the Columbia River Gorge for more sunshine, windsurfing, skiing, fishing,biking and outdoor work tending their 7.5 acres of cherry orchard and natural growth Pine and Oak trees. To support their love for outdoor activities and continue to improve their Mosier acreage they rent two independent lodging spaces separate from their Main House to seasonal visitors to the Columbia River Gorge. Over the years their renters have become part of their "family" with whom they keep in touch in the off-season months.
The Poveys love "their place on the hill" because it is such a peaceful, lovely setting with great river views and easy access to the river, bike paths, excellent fishing streams and miles of biking trails. Their home is only 5 miles from Hood River and 12 miles from The Dalles where good shopping, excellent food and a broad array of urban services are available. The Poveys are always available to answer questions about the area and to offer advice about Gorge adventures. They enjoy our privacy and extend that opportunity to all our guests who visit and stay on the property.
