You can stay at the Giant Potato Hotel listed on Airbnb for $200 a night

Sometimes dreams come true in the most unexpected ways. I never thought my lifelong dream would be to stay inside a giant potato - but now that I know it's there, it's definitely a dream come true. That's right, there's a giant potato Airbnb in Boise, Idaho, and it's...well, that's exactly what it sounds like. The Big Idaho Potato Hotel is delivering some major Big Potato energy, right here, right now.

“Stay in a six-ton ​​potato!” host Kristie wrote in her Airbnb listing. “This is the original potato that traveled countless miles across the country on the back of a semi truck for the Idaho Potato Commission!” I appreciate that this is a potato that actually does that and not a shitty imposter. I also appreciated that she thought I knew what the Idaho Potato Commission was. I love this potato situation. Essentially, the potato was driven on a truck for six years to raise awareness about the potato, Insider reported. This is a big deal in the giant potato world.

Although it looks like a giant potato from the outside, its soil is actually very lush. The Potato Room features a queen bed, suitable for two guests, a fireplace and air conditioning. At 28 feet long and 12 feet wide, it was the largest potato I had ever heard of.

The inside of the potato is made of plaster with a lovely pink tint, which is surprisingly modern and looks very zen and cool. In fact, it was just like how I imagined the inside of a real potato would be, but without that weird moisture that's common inside potatoes. Not that I spent a lot of time touching the insides of the potatoes - but they were surprisingly comfortable.


How much does it cost to live in a glorious potato? Well, as you can imagine, this palatial and magical accommodation gets booked up quickly. But when I checked the prices for midweek nights in June, they jumped to $200 a night. Of course, there's a $31 service charge and a $16 occupancy tax, which means a night's cost is about $247. Is it worth it for a night filled with potato happiness and memories? Absolutely effective. Side note: If you’re looking for an affordable vacation, Boise, Idaho seems to have a ton of amazing places for cheap. who knows?


It also looks like an ideal destination if you want a bit of tranquility. "The Potato Hotel is surrounded by 400 acres of farmland," the description explains. "The Union Pacific Railroad ran along the right side of the highway. The only place we passed was the National Guard train facility that hosted soldiers from all over the country." Weird twist, but sure.

Airbnb already has amazing places to stay and super unique Airbnb experiences. Booking an activity on Airbnb is always a bit of a risk, but staying in a real potato might be the biggest, most delicious adventure yet. Hurry and make a reservation, because if the universe loved potatoes even one-tenth as much as I do, this restaurant would be booked out in no time.
