This Giant Potato Is Actually An Idaho Airbnb You Can Rent For $200 A Night
There are tiny houses and then there are giant potatoes… which are also tiny houses. For those of you who have dreamed of snuggling up in a bowl of mashed potatoes (that’s a thing, right?), the Idaho Potato Commission has gifted Airbnb with a six-ton tank potato hotel on 400 acres of land.
Tragically, it’s not a real oversized potato, although it would probably smell terrible. It is a 28 foot long structure made of steel, plaster and concrete. It was made to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission, the Detroit Free Press reports, and has been on the road for the past seven years. Once it was ready to stay put, Kristie Wolfe, a small home builder, turned it into a kind of hotel that is now listed on Airbnb.

Although it looks like a real potato on the outside, the inside is surprisingly chic. There are millennial pink chairs, indoor plants, an all-white queen bed, and even a fireplace. (There is also air conditioning, fortunately). There is no kitchen, you might want to bring snacks or plan to eat meals in Boise, but there is a small bathroom with a trash can situation, toilet and sink. Towels, sheets, soap and toilet paper are provided for each guest.
You and a friend can stay in the Potato for $200 a night plus a resort fee and cleaning fee. It is booked until May, but there are open dates from July! Of note, there’s no WiFi or TV inside the potato, so consider this your own mini detox tech.
