This past week, The Big Idaho Potato was revealed as a converted Airbnb!  The 6-ton potato has spent the last six years touring the country. Its purpose has been to promote the United State’s most famous crop. After all these years, the Famous Idaho Potato Tour decided to replace the old potato with a new one.  The new potato is made of fiberglass and weighs two tons less than the original. Because there were no plans for the original potato,  the Idaho Potato Museum in Blackfoot, ID considered adding it to their museum. However, Kristie Wolfe, creator of the potato, had a different plan.

Starting at the end of May, guests near and far, will be able to book a reservation to stay the night (or a few) in the Big Idaho Potato Hotel  for $200/night. Kristie Wolfe has designed the inside of the potato to have a rustic, chic feel with a peeling place station for guests to use during their stay. The potato sleeps two,  has heating and cooling, a separate bathroom, and a sitting area with a fireplace.
