    We had another wonderful time at the Balch Hotel with the Friends of the Columbia Gorge. Great location, really good food and very nice accommodations. And great service, too! And in the charming town of Dufur.

    Yes, we have good cell coverage for Verizon. Some of the smaller carriers do not reach out here. There is no data, however. We have free wifi throughout the building so when you get here you'll have all you need.
