Big Idaho potato becomes Airbnb

News

Looking for a unique place to stay?

How about a six-ton spud made out of steel, plaster, and concrete?

A replica russet potato that was built to mark the Idaho potato commission’s 75th anniversary has been converted into a hotel in Boise.

The tater won’t hold many tots as it has just one queen sized bed, a living area, and some shelving, but it does have beautiful mountain views. The bathroom is outside in a converted silo.

The potato commission toured the giant spud around the country for several years before replacing it in 2018 with a newer model.

It opens in late May, but bookings are available now on Airbnb at $200 a night.
