A giant potato prop is now available on Airbnb for rental

A 6-ton potato prop has been converted into an Airbnb in Idaho after touring the U.S. for 6 years.

Presently called the Big Idaho Potato Hotel, fake spud traveled on the back of a semi-truck for the Idaho Potato Commission to promote the state’s crop, according to the Idaho Statesman.

When they were finished with the giant vegetable’s visit, the commission wasn’t sure what to do with it until little house designer Kristie Wolfe proposed transforming it into a rental home, the outlet reported.

Wolfe had gone through 2 years with the spud on its visit and told the Idaho Statesman she had always wanted to turn it into a rental.

she told the outlet: “I had the perfect lot, and someday I was going to get that potato and turn it into something cool,”

On Monday, the potato was unveiled at a grand opening, according to a Facebook post from the Idaho Potato Commission. The post also included photos of the Potato Hotel, which even has a bathroom.

According to its Airbnb page:

The potato has air conditioning, heating, and an indoor fireplace. Listed as a farm stay, the one-bedroom potato can only host two people and has a queen-sized bed.

It costs $200 per night to stay in the potato, which is located on 400 acres of farmland 25 miles southeast of Boise, according to the Idaho Statesman. The outlet reported the potato/hotel is 28 feet long, 12 feet wide, 11.5 feet tall and 336 square feet.
