Little People’s Matt Roloff to rent out family home on $4M farm as an Airbnb as he struggles to sell m… – The US Sun

LITTLE People Big World star Matt Roloff is renting out the family home on his $4million farm as an Airbnb, a source has confirmed.
The U.S. Sun can exclusively confirm Matt's shocking decision to transform the famous home into a rental as the famous farm has been on the market for over 160 days.
An insider at Roloff Farm told The U.S. Sun that the big announcement was shared with visitors beginning last week.
Matt, 60, chatted about the exciting news during his Q&A at a book signing.
When curious fans began asking about the fate of the famous family home and land property for sale, Matt shared he had made the decision to list the home as an Airbnb rental.
Matt revealed the home is 26 weeks behind schedule from opening up to guests due to severe delays at the permit office.
The Roloff patriarch hopes the Airbnb rental will be running in full swing by next pumpkin season.
Tour guides on the farm also gushed about the exciting announcement.
As workers took fans around the perimeter of the big house, they were finally allowed to share the special update over the past week.
During the first half of the pumpkin season, they had to keep the secret under lock and key because the home's transition into an Airbnb is set to be a major storyline on the upcoming season of LPBW, beginning November 1.
As fans passed by the home on the tour, they could see workers entering and exiting the home getting it freshened up for its future guests.
A giant green sign was posted up in front of the home which read: "Coming Soon, Short Term Rental."
As the Airbnb is underway, Jacob, 25, and his wife Isabel, 26, have moved into a fifth-wheel camper home on a private property plot of land under heavy construction beside the Roloff farm.
The source exclusively told The U.S. Sun: "Jacob and Isabel are living on the farm full time. "
"They were renting a place previously, and are saving up while on the farm."
Fifth-wheel camper homes can range from $36,000 to $135,000 depending on size and amenities.
The source claims the crafty couple is also considering converting a bus into their temporary home.
Presently, it is unclear if the construction on Jacob and Isabel's private land is for a future family home for them to settle into, or if Matt's youngest son is only staying close by until the farm finds a buyer.
The source continued: "[Jacob and Isabel] are living there to save money and help out on the farm.
"The rest of the family doesn’t mind, as Matt and Caryn get along so well with them."
According to a second insider, Matt and his girlfriend Caryn Chandler, 53, help out with the couple's baby Mateo, ten months, as Jacob works on the farm and Isabel greets fans.
During weekends working on the farm, Amy, 60, keeps her distance from her ex-husband as she greets fans, and her new husband Chris Marek, 60, also helps out with Mateo.
The insider told The U.S. Sun that Isabel is generous with her time and allows all of the fans to stop, chat and meet her adorable baby boy.
During lunch breaks, Isabel heads to the farm to eat on the grass with Jacob and then takes Mateo back to the camper for his afternoon nap after the newborn's hard work greeting fans.
The LPBW insider also shared that Jacob works hard on the farm and does not take his father's generosity for granted.
Jacob has been busy cutting wood, running the pumpkin farm, transporting work tools around in a farm tractor and more.
When Jacob turned 25 in January of this year, Matt passed along a prized family farm heirloom to reward his youngest son's hard work around the farm.
Fans thought Jacob inheriting Matt's bright yellow vintage car could be yet another clue he will be the son to take over the farm.
As Jacob has fallen onto his father's good side, his older twin brothers Zach and Jeremy, 32, have refused to show up during pumpkin season – the family's busiest time of year.
Jeremy has been busy settling into his new $1.5million farm with his wife Audrey, 31.
Although their new property is only a little over a ten-minute drive away from the Roloff farm, Jeremy has not shown up to help out during the season.
Meanwhile, Zach shocked fans early in the summer with the announcement he would not help out for the family's pumpkin season amid his nasty feud with Matt.
The pair clashed after Zach and his wife Tori's offer to buy a portion of the family farm was declined.
In a previous episode of LPBW, Zach revealed during a confessional: "My dad and I could not come to an agreement on buying the farm, so with everything going on, I made the decision not to work pumpkin season.
"I'm disenchanted by the whole thing, so, yeah. I'm stepping away."
Despite Jeremy and Zach both presenting offers to Matt to buy the farm, he refused their offers and instead decided to put the land up for sale.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Matt is asking for $4 million for the original family home and bright red barn.
Zach responded to the farm being posted for sale by ripping his father, calling him a "bad grandparent" who doesn't "value his family."
Amy also fired back and said on the season finale: “I think you went crazy or something. I don’t know the details of the negotiation with the two boys. For the price it is, the kids can’t afford that.”
Matt responded: “The good news is, there are 93 acres for this family.” 
Amy slammed: “No, there are 93 acres for Matt Roloff. It’s not part of the family anymore.”
However, Matt may have intended to sell the farm to his son, just not Zach or Jeremy.
In April, a source close to Matt told The U.S. Sun: "Matt would prefer Jacob and wife, Isabel, to take over the farm, but he's not sure they are on board at the moment."
The insider continued: "He is the youngest son, but Matt knows Jacob has potential. They are on the farm a lot, and Matt thinks this is a good way to teach him a lot of things he needs to learn."
