This 6-ton potato in Idaho is available to rent on Airbnb

Want to live in your own private Idaho potato?


Just like the B-52's song says, you can live in your own "Private Idaho" when you snag this eclectic Airbnb rental.

While it may not be an actual potato, this giant, 6-ton replica of a potato has been hollowed out and converted into a surprisingly stylish Airbnb in Boise, Idaho, that will only set you back $200 a night.

The potato originally traveled across the country on the back of a semitruck for the Idaho Potato Commission, and was transformed by Kristie Wolfe, a micro-property developer.

The potato "hotel" is surrounded by 400 acres of farm land, so you'll really feel like you're living the authentic Idaho potato experience. The inside of the rental is temperature-controlled and even comes with a fireplace. The quaint space can only sleep two people, but what better way to spend a romantic weekend with your partner than inside a giant vegetable? 

What is most shocking about this rental is, the inside is actually very chic! The interior is painted white, and the minimalist decor and soft colors really make the inside extremely pleasing to the eye. It just screams relaxation. 


Unfortunately, the Airbnb is booked up until mid-summer, so if your dream is to sleep inside a fake, giant potato, we suggest you lock in a reservation soon. You can check out the full Airbnb posting here
