Turning the house into a vacation rental may also help ease some tensions within the Roloff family. (As The Ashley previously reported, Matt and his son zack have been at odds since they couldn’t agree on Zach buying part of the farm. Matt continued to put the disputed acres on the market and later hinted that Zach and his twin Jeremy were to blame for the sale, which prompted Zach to take to Instagram to call his father a “manipulator” and other selected words.)
Matt said opening the house for short-term rentals would be ‘like having a family timeshare’, admitting it ‘maybe should have been plan A’ as it will allow all the Roloff children to use the farm whenever they want. (In addition to Zach, Jeremy and Jacob, Matt and Amy also share their daughter Molly.)
“The one thing I always wanted was for the kids to find a way to share the farm, the four kids,” Matt said. “And now with this new arrangement, it’s shared because these kids can block out time, family members can block out weeks or days.”
