Full description
A deliciously unique, six-ton spud-and-spa retreat for two, set in 400 acres of farmland with a friendly Jersey cow as your holiday pet!

Big Idaho Potato Hotel is exactly what it says on the tin: a six-ton Russet Burbank potato, of the type that's famously grown in Idaho, transformed into a romantic rural getaway for two.

Crafted from steel, plaster, and concrete, the 28-foot long tater has been recycled from the Big Potato Tour, hosted by the Idaho Potato Commission (yes, there is such a place!)  

After spending many faithful years travelling across the US, the potato has since been lovingly made over by friendly owner Kristie - a proud Idaho native, and a former Big Potato Tour spokesperson.

What's more, current growing conditions couldn't be more perfect. Your delectable retreat is set amongst 400 acres of rolling farmland, with spectacular views of the Owyhee Mountains in the distance.  

(You'll also get to meet an incredibly cute Jersey cow called Dolly, who's all ready and waiting to be your holiday companion!)

Inside your mouthwatering potato hotel are plenty of welcoming creature comforts, including a custom-built queensize bed, a mini fridge, themed books, games, and a record player with a selection of classics to spin.  

Air conditioning will cool those hot summer nights, and there are also plenty of charging spots for your devices - a good thing, since you'll be probably making more than a few Instagram updates during your stay!

Indeed, you'll find that your surroundings are light, bright, and furnished with plenty of style (Kristie is an expert Tiny House creator, who knows exactly how to make her guests feel relaxed) and there's no pesky TV or Wi-Fi to distract you from reconnecting with your loved one.

What about bathroom facilities, you ask? These are housed in a customised grain silo just a few steps away from your potato.  Along with the standard loo and sink, here you'll discover a giant whirlpool, luxury toiletries... and a gleaming glass skylight for a bubbly evening soak with added stargazing!

If you can tear yourselves away from your tater, a 30-minute drive will take you straight into downtown Boise, Idaho's state capital, with a wealth of shops, restaurants, and culture-spots to choose from.

Otherwise, simply pull up a chair outside at the picnic table, and pour a glass of wine as you take in that captivating sunset with Dolly at your side.
