This 6 ton potato in Idaho is available for rent on Airbnb
Just like the song from the B-52 says, you can live in your own “private Idaho” when you purchase this eclectic Airbnb rental.
Although it may not be a real potato, this giant 6-ton replica of a potato has been hollowed out and converted into a surprisingly stylish Airbnb in Boise, Idaho, which will only set you back $ 207 a night (as of August 2021).
The potato was transformed by Kristie Wolfe, a micro-property developer.
The Potato ‘Hotel’ is surrounded by 400 acres of farmland, so you’ll really feel like you’re getting the authentic Idaho potato experience. The interior of the rental is temperature controlled and even has a fireplace. There is also a queen bed, mini-fridge, power outlets, and a record player.
A few steps away is a silo which has a bathroom and a tub that can be used for stargazing.
The picturesque space can only accommodate two people, but what better way to spend a romantic weekend with your partner than inside a giant vegetable replica?
What is most shocking about this rental is that the interior is actually very chic! The interior is painted white, and the minimalist decor and soft colors really make the interior extremely pleasing to the eye. He just screams “relax”.
It looks like Airbnb is reserving quickly, so if your dream is to sleep in a giant fake potato, we suggest you lock a reservation soon.
The potato was recycled from a potato tour conducted by the Idaho Potato Commission and traveled in the back of a truck through 48 states over a period of seven years, according to the Airbnb page.
