In the past, there were limited options for vacation accommodation.

If you were traveling, you had little choice apart from to stay in a hotel.

And while a hotel stay is a lovely luxury …

There’s one major downside. Many tend to have prices leaning toward the extortionate side – making travel essentially unaffordable for many.

Until Airbnb, that is.

Founded in 2008, the online travel accommodation marketplace has absolutely revolutionized the industry. Through the site, anyone can book affordable lodging pretty much anywhere on earth.

And alongside the lowered price tag?

There’s another undeniable advantage. While hotels tend to be rather generic, staying in someone’s home is always an aesthetic surprise.

While hotels tend to be rather generic with the same simple style.

This six-ton prop potato has been transformed into a place for guests after spending six years on the road celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission.

Surprisingly spacious, this potato is decorated with white walls and rustic furniture.

It even has air conditioning, a bathroom, and a fireplace.

It is described on Airbnb as “recycled from the Idaho Potato Commission’s Big Idaho Potato Tour, this 6-ton potato has traveled on the back of a semi to (48) states for seven years.”

“Now resting on 400 acres of good ol’ Idaho farmland, just south of downtown Boise, this hotel has been meticulously designed by Kristie Wolfe, a former Big Idaho Potato Tour spokesperson, to allow for stylish private comfort and amenities such as power outlets for your electronic devices, a mini fridge, old records to play and a custom-built bed.”

“There is also a customized silo turned into a spa retreat perfect for soaking while looking up at the stars. For an extra dose of cuteness, The Big Idaho Potato Hotel comes with the cutest jersey cow in the world who will be your fuzzy pet for the stay.”

This experience will set you back around $290 per night.
