Dove Cottage II is owned and operated by Julia and Bill Bishop, formerly of Houston and Asheville. Julia is a practicing interior designer with more than 40 years' experience. Bill is a consulting petroleum geologist, prior to which he had 30 years' experience with large companies in Houston, Shreveport and Calgary.

The Bishops are graduates of Miami University in Ohio and have been collecting art and antiques for more than 50 years. They operated a shop at their B & B (Broomfields) in Central Texas from 1993-99 and showed at the semi-annual Round Top (Texas) Antiques Show. They are the owners of Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, which features well-known local and other artists, carvers, and photographers; quality antiques and collectibles; selected gift items; and The Gambit - Interior Design.

Bill and Julia are also members of the National Committee for the New River and belong to the River Builder Program, which works to stabilize eroding river and stream banks in the New River watershed. Banks are re-vegetated with silky dogwood live-stakes and other native plants, which quickly develop extensive root systems to help hold banks in place and create riparian buffers. Stream bank stabilization protects property by preventing further erosion and protects water quality by significantly reducing sedimentation into the river. This is why the surrounding banks are not mowed back. A launching access is located at the end of the mowed path.
