On a recent trip to Boise, we heard about this Potato Hotel (which is listed on Airbnb) and decided to check it out. It is a little ways outside of Boise, but not too far from all the things to do in Boise. We had done a few non-touristy things while in the area, and decided it would be fun to do something that said “Idaho”. We definitely found it, lol.
Apparently this 6 ton potato traveled on the back of a semi to (48) states for seven years. As stated earlier, it now rests just south of downtown Boise on 400 acres of good ol’ Idaho farmland. 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.
One thing that did surprise us was that the Big Idaho Potato Hotel comes with the cutest jersey cow in the world which lives on the property. She is so sweet and her name is Dolly (just like our dog, J ) They leave out food in a bin so you can feed her if you wish. It was such a nice surprise and a great adventure. If you are in Boise area sometime, check it out.
