Potato fans rejoice! Now you can actually stay in one, or at least the Big Idaho Potato Hotel, which has been listed on Airbnb. The 6-ton structure isn’t actually made from potatoes, but rather steel, plaster, and concrete, located in a large field with views of the Owyhee Mountains in South Boise, Idaho. Measuring 28 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 11.5 feet tall, the potato sleeps two adults comfortable, boasting one queen bed, a small bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace, and air-conditioning.

“The giant potato was created by the Idaho Potato Commission to promote the noble vegetable. After the spud toured the US for six years on the back of a truck, the commission was at a loss for what to do with it. But then Kristie Wolfe, a small-home developer, had the ingenious idea to turn the potato into a property. It costs $200 a night, plus a $31 service fee and $16 in occupancy taxes and fees, bringing the total price of a one-night stay to $247,” reports Insider. More information.
