The Idaho Potato Commission Transforms Giant Potato Into New Airbnb Location
BOISE, ID - You say potato, I say potatobnb! The Idaho Potato Commission is entering a new market—the hotel market—with an all-new immersion experience unlike any before. Now, travelers can lay their weary heads to rest in a six-ton potato that has been completely renovated into an Airbnb room, according to a Facebook announcement.
“So, if you really just wanted to know what it’s like to be inside a potato as opposed to have a potato inside you, here’s a great opportunity to experience it,” said Frank Muir, President and CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission.
The Big Idaho Potato Hotel, as it’s listed on the Airbnb site, was formerly a part of the Big Idaho Potato Truck, which has been touring the country for the last seven years. Now, there’s a new spud (2.0) being pulled around the States, leading the commission to reach out to Kristi Wolfe. Wolfe then worked her tiny home magic and recycled the Big Idaho Potato 1.0 into a hotel room in honor of Earth Day.
According to the Airbnb listing, two lucky guests can stay at this surprisingly stylish one-bedroom-one-bath for $200 per night. The potatobnb, as I like to call it, sits on 400 acres outside of Boise on real Idaho farmland and even comes with, and I quote, the “cutest jersey cow in the world who will be your fuzzy pet for the stay.”
There you have it: For $200, you can stay in a giant potato in the middle of Idaho and rent a cow as your pet. This is the world we live in today—cool, yeah?
While it looks like the room is booked until June, check out the great potato getaway here.
