Our owners, the Weatherly Family (Cierra & Michael with children Sienna & Mylan) have been longtime residents of neighboring Nelson County and split time between Virginia Beach. Cierra and Michael grew up and attended high school together in northeastern North Carolina and have been together for over 20 years.
When COVID turned the world upside down in 2020, they packed up the family and moved to their cabin in Nelson County. This allowed the Weatherly Family to take a step back, enjoy nature, go hiking, play in the creek, fish, relax, focus on their business and children’s learning and overall, just connect.
The Weatherly Family loves travel and all things European (especially Italian). The family had been to Europe every year since 2005, but when all travel was stopped in 2020, they turned their full attention to the Blue Ridge — an area they have always considered their “Tuscany in the US.”
While on COVID lockdown they began searching for land and adventure. Through this search they discovered the farm at Skyline Meadows. It was love at first sight/site!
The land, views and buildings are breathtaking and look like something out of a European storybook. Italian, French and German influence are intertwined throughout the landscape and building designs, including a grandiose Chateau (Main Country Farm House), Guest House, Barn Apartment, Cabin Retreat and Farm House circa 1819. When the Weatherlys saw the farm, they knew this was that final piece of Europe, here at home, tucked away quietly and peacefully in the Shenandoah Valley.
