A big potato in Idaho is now an Airbnb, and you can rent it for $200

There’s a brand new entry on the World’s Weirdest Airbnbs, and it’s a potato. A POTATO. In Idaho, of course.

From the outside, it looks like the potato couldn’t possibly be habitable — again, it is A POTATO — but in fact, it features a queen-sized bed and a fireplace.

It’s called the Big Idaho Potato Hotel.

Upon further reading about the Airbnb, it quickly becomes clear that the potato is fake, which is a real bummer but also a relief. The tuber weighs six tons, and it’s 28 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 11.5 feet tall.  It’s made of steel, plaster, and concrete.

The outside looks appealing, in the sense that potatoes are delicious, but also very unappealing, in the sense that you’d never think to spend the night in one.

But inside, there’s air-conditioning, a kitchenette, and a small bathroom.

The giant potato was originally created to promote potatoes across the country. After six years of traveling the country on the bed of a truck, it now has a much trendier purpose: millennials pay over $200 a night on Airbnb to sleep inside of it and take Instagram photos.

The Big Idaho Potato Hotel sits in a giant field in Boise, Idaho, with views of the Owyhee Mountains.

It has zero reviews on Airbnb due to being brand new, so… Who’s going to book this place first?!
