Little People’s Jacob and Isabel Roloff finally settle in family’s native Oregon
AFTER years of traveling the country in a beat-up van, Little People, Big World’s Jacob Roloff and wife Isabel are back living in their family’s native state of Oregon.
The couple have been in Bend, Oregon for a few weeks now and are absolutely in “love with the place.”
Jacob, the youngest of Matt and Amy Roloff’s four children, took off for a life on the road with his wife a long time ago, after quitting Little People, Big World when he turned 18.
The 23-year-old and Isabel, 22, got married this past September, after five years together, surrounded by all of their family, but they haven’t spent much time with the Roloff crew since then.
They’ve been on a long road trip in their 1987 Westfalia van named Ruby to visit 10 states and 10 national parks, but they’re now halting their journey as they camp out in Bend, thanks to a canceled event they’d planned to attend.
Isabel shared some videos of her new, nature-filled life in the area, writing with one of them: “I have wanted to move to Bend, Oregon for a very long time but everyone always told me, ‘It never rains there, it is sunny every single days of the year.’
“Which, honestly…was a turn off lol. I love the rain.
“We have been here for a few weeks now and it’s been raining and storming, and let me just say, I’m more in love w this place than ever.”
The Little People couple were in Oregon a few weeks ago to visit with Roloff matriarch Amy for Mother’s Day, but soon took off in their van once again.
Amy, who divorced Matt last year and recently moved off the family farm and into a new home with fiance Chris Marek, enjoyed the comfort of seeing her youngest son.
She shared a photo with Jacob and Isabel last month, captioning it: “Going to miss these two everyday @jacobroloff45 and @isabelsofiarock.
“They’re back on the road, van life, and looking for a home for one day soon. Thankfully not to far far away. They came over for Mother’s Day and gave me flowers. This mama was happy.”
After seeing their mom, the twenty-somethings planned on traveling to Bend for just a short time before continuing on but that quickly changed after the area’s Descend On Bend, “a gathering of vans and van-folk,” was canceled.
They camped out in their beat-up but decked-out van in the woods, along with their two dogs, to figure out their next step but ended up deciding to stay for a bit longer.
