We pick potatoes, we mash potatoes, and now…we sleep in potatoes?

Thanks to this incredibly creative Airbnb host, you can actually stay in a ginormous potato in Boise, Idaho. If you find yourself dreaming of Idaho potatoes, then your dream is finally coming true now that you get to wake up in one!

Pro tip: Thinking about becoming an Airbnb host yourself? Here are 14 things you should know before renting property on Airbnb.

Kristie Wolfe is the mastermind behind the Big Idaho Potato Hotel. After being a Big Idaho Potato Tour spokesperson herself, she decided to follow her dream of making a treehouse. Not only did she create one tree house, but two tree houses, an “Underground Hygge” that perfectly depicts a hobbit hole from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings, and now, the Big Idaho Potato Hotel.

Wolfe’s newest starchy creation officially kicked off on April. 22 of this year. According to the Airbnb listing, the potato was recycled from the Idaho Potato Commission’s Big Idaho Potato Tour. This potato traveled on the back of a semi-truck to 48 different states within seven years, and it weighs six tons. It now sits on farmland spanning 400 acres and just south of downtown Boise—officially becoming the perfect spot to stay when checking Boise off your “places to visit” list.

While the outside of the potato looks like, well, a potato, the inside looks quite chic and stylish. The inside of the potato was painted white, with light pink chairs as accents and lots of greenery. There’s a small shelf of knick-knacks across from the accent chair. Towards the entrance, there’s a small kitchenette with a tea kettle, a sink, and a small refrigerator. The queen bed sits at the back of the potato with an eccentric chandelier made of antlers hanging above.

While this space doesn’t seem to have windows, the bathroom has a small lookout allowing you to gaze at those starry nights. Located separate from the potato, the bathroom was made inside a customized silo. There’s a small metal tub with a shower head, and the bathroom is covered in even more lush greenery. There’s a small window at the top of the silo, and based on the photos, it seems there’s an indoor furnace as well! In her listing, Wolfe calls it “a spa retreat perfect for soaking while looking up at the stars.”

Since the Big Idaho Potato Hotel is still new to Airbnb, there haven’t been many reviews of the space quite yet. But according to her other listings and Airbnb ratings, Wolfe’s newest Airbnb venture is gearing up to be another great success. One night at the Big Idaho Potato Hotel costs $200, and the next booking isn’t available until June.
