The state of Idaho is known for its potatoes so it is not surprising that a larger than life-sized potato has been transformed into a hotel. According to the Idaho Statesman and Fox News, “the fake spud traveled on the back of semi-truck for the Idaho Potato Commission to promote the state’s crop.” After a few years of touring, the state decided to take the advice of a tiny house developer who went on tour with the potato and transform it into a home.
After some renovations and finding the couple ton potato a permanent place to reside, it is officially open for business. Due to its presence and look, the hotel was named the Big Idaho Potato Hotel.
Anyone who has an interest in staying at the Big Idaho Potato Hotel can go onto the Airbnb services site and rent it out for a few nights or however long they want to stay. Although the fake potato is not an actual building, it does have the usual works of a home with air conditioning, heating units, and a bathroom. Housing up to two people at a time.
