First things first! Are you a couch potato? If you enjoy just chilling on your bed, watching TV shows, munching on some crisps and enjoy being a proper couch potato, well we may just found the ideal place for you! The place is called the "Big Idaho Potato Hotel" and it is every carb lover's dream come true.
The giant tuber in Boise, Idaho has been going viral on social media, courtesy its six-ton potato structure. You can now spend some quality time at the Airbnb hotel for just $200 per night, reports The Idaho Statesman.
It all started as a small building for the Idaho Potato Commission to be driven around the country promoting potatoes. However, as time went by, the Commission became clueless as to what to do with the giant spud, after spending nearly six years on the road. And then steps in, tiny house developer Kristie Wolfe who had some big plans for the 'Big Idaho Potato Hotel', which tells you pretty much everything you need to know about it.
“It was always in my game plan,” Wolfe was quoted as saying by People. She had spent over two years on the road with the potato as an ambassador for the commission. “I had the perfect lot, and someday I was going to get that potato and turn it into something cool.”
Set on 400 acres of land, the giant potato hotel was completely redesigned by Wolfe. She worked on the hollow inside of the potato, added a wood floor and gave it a nice bohemian decor. This also includes a queen-sized bed and two easy chairs. And don't worry, it also has a bathroom attached, along with air conditioning and a fireplace.
“It’s very American,” Wolfe said. “You’ve got potatoes and the military and the railroad. It’s a good way to experience Idaho in a night or two.” Wolfe has worked on quite a few projects, including a Hobbit Hole rental overlooking the Columbia River near Chelan, Washington, and a treehouse on the Big Island of Hawaii.
“We have a couple from Europe that’s doing a trip to the Oregon Coast,” she said. “They’re rerouting their trip to spend a night here, which is pretty fun.”
The Airbnb rental, however, doesn't have a kitchen so guests are advised to get their meals prepared or have their dinners before spending the night. And now if you are wondering how to book your stay in here, fret not. We have all the deets! You and your friend/ spouse can stay inside the Big Idaho Potato Hotel for just $200 per night along with an additional $31 service fee and $16 in occupancy taxes and fees.
Not bad a deal for a fancy hotel, isn't it? Now if you are looking to book your tickets, we might have some bad news. It is completely booked through May, but there are a lot of open dates available in June. And also there is no internet, Wi-Fi or TV available inside the hotel, so consider bringing a book for the night. You never know, it might just be the technology detox you have been waiting for!
