There is an annual tradition by the Idaho Potato Commission where they release a giant red truck that embarks on a road trip across the country which has come to be known as “The Big Idaho Potato Tour.”
What makes this truck stand out, even more, is the fact that it comes with a trailer on which a giant Idaho potato is fixed. While it’s fake, the size is pretty impressive. However, this isn’t its only function.
Apparently, one of these giant potatoes has since been retired from its days of touring around on the back of a trailer, and has been converted into a cute little Airbnb located in the southern countryside of Boise, Idaho!
Former Big Idaho Potato Tour spokesperson, Kristie Wolfe, had a hand in the giant spud’s transformation into an Airbnb. It had all the modern amenities that you might find in a local farmhouse, such as a fireplace, air conditioning, a mini-fridge, and a record player. There are even some records already there for guests to play if they wish.
The entire spud Airbnb is decorated in a very minimalist aesthetic. Seeing the inside of this unique Airbnb, you’d almost forget that you’re sleeping inside a giant potato, however, there is one minor tell-tale sign. If you need the bathroom, you will have to visit the refurbished grain silo just outside.
The potato Airbnb also doesn’t have a kitchen, TV, or Wifi, so cooking your own meals or unwinding with Netflix won’t be possible if you choose to stay. Of course, if none of these minor disturbances don’t put you off, a stay in the potato means you get the entire accommodation to yourself. However, you will be in the company of a Jersey cow named Dolly, who is quite popular with previous guests.
The Airbnb listing is on their website for $165 per night, and you can click here to book.
