Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Wendy and Jake Jacobs have been married over 50 years and have always loved adventure and challenges. They have two sons with whom they work on multiple projects. Jake a former fighter pilot has owned several businesses over the years and they have lived in 7 states. However, upon moving to the Amis Farm in east TN, Wendy declared she was 'home' and Jake agreed. The Jacobs have loved working with old properties beginning with restoring an antibellum plantation home in Louisiana, an 1885 log cabin in Colorado and an 1890 Victorian in South Carolina. Saving the best for last they are now restoring her 5th Great Grandfathers home and community near Rogersville, TN. Making a great team, Jake does the design and construction and Wendy adds the flair and fluff.
Why the Owner Chose Rogersville, TN, USA:
Wendy Jacobs and her husband Jake had the opportunity to purchase the Thomas Amis Farm from her distant cousin and jumped at the chance. Thomas Amis was Wendy's 5th Great Grandfather and received the property as a Revolutionary War Land Grant for his military service. He selected this site on Big Creek where Old Stage Road (the original road from Philadelphia to the frontier) ended on the edge of the wilderness. Here he built a stone dam, mill, stone home, forge, foundry, blacksmith shop, tannery, boot and harness shop, store and distillery. The Jacobs are putting it back piece by piece. The first step was to build and open Amis Mill Eatery a family restaurant overlooking Big Creek Dam and water falls. The grounds have been reclaimed and offer walking trails along the creek and through the woods filled with birdhouses to the old family cemetery and home place grounds. Creekside cabin is a short walk or drive downstream from Amis Mill Eatery and the home place grounds.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Visitors comment that they feel they have stepped back in time to a more quiet, relaxed life and that's exactly what we want. Yet, we are in the heart of what's happening in Appalachia from Cherokee Lake to Bristol. The east Tn scenery is unparallelled and the history is fascinating.
