If you live for potatoes, you can’t just stop at eating them. You’ve got to visit Idaho, tour the Potato Museum in Blackfoot, then drive four hours East to spend the night in a giant potato house outside Boise.
Yes, there’s a giant potato house, and yes, you want to stay here.
Recycled from the Idaho Potato Commission’s Big Idaho Potato Tour, this giant 6-ton carb now sits on a 400-acre plot just waiting for ‘tato-obsessed visitors.
A former member of the Big Idaho Potato Truck Tour team, Idahoan Kristie Wolfe renovated and decorated this quirky one-room hotel and now offers it up on Airbnb for $200 per night.
“It’s designed for couples. I think there will be a lot of staycations and hopefully it will be a thing like if your family is coming from out of town like ‘oh, you have to go and stay a night in the Big Idaho Potato Hotel,” Wolfe said to the Idaho Statesman.
The spud comes with a custom-built bed and mini fridge, with guests able to soak in a hot tub in a nearby customized silo. Oh, and there’ll be an accompanying jersey cow to pet on arrival just in case you weren’t having the most quirky overnight experience already.
This is one hot potato! It’s booked out until August, so if it’s your dream to whisk your loved one away to the fields of Idaho and stay in a mammoth tater, get booking!
