Idaho may not be considered to be a top vacation destination, but it should be, purely because of the unique and adventurous hotels it holds. Check out these fascinating accommodations in Idaho.

Dog Bark Park Inn, Cottonwood, ID

There are people who love dogs and then there are people who love dogs so much that they’d stay in a dog-shaped hotel. The aptly named Dog Bark Park Inn is a bed and breakfast that also happens to be the world’s largest beagle. This takes “doghouse” to a whole new level.

Big Idaho Potato Hotel, Boise, ID

It’s no secret that Idaho is known for its potatoes, but still, it’s a bit of a shocker to see a potato-shaped hotel. Since 2012, this 6-ton potato-shaped structure has provided cozy and genuinely comfortable accommodations for visitors from all over.

Treehouse on Lake Pend O’reille, Sandpoint, ID

Lake Pend O’reille is an absolutely gorgeous lake in lovely Sandpoint, but it’s even more gorgeous if you get an elevated view. At the one-of-a-kind three-story Treehouse on Lake Pend O’reille, you can enjoy that view from your own bedroom.

Black Swan Inn, Pocatello, ID

Is it really a unique hotel if the rooms don’t have ornate themes? You won’t need to ask at the Black Swan Inn in Pocatello. With murals and sculptures in each room, you’ll be surrounded by artwork in any of its 14 themed rooms.

Destinations Inn, Idaho Falls, ID

Idaho Falls is a more exotic destination than you might realize because you can get the feel of a trip around the world within one hotel: Destinations Inn. This adventurous hotel features a different location-based theme in each room, from Egypt to Thailand.

The Coeur d’Alene Golf and Spa Resort, Coeur d’Alene, ID

If you’re heading to Coeur d’Alene, the Coeur d’Alene Golf and Spa Resort is the most luxurious and special place to stay. Among other amenities, you can golf on the world’s only floating green.

Smiley Creek Lodge, Ketchum, ID

Smiley Creek Lodge in quaint Ketchum is sure to put a smile on your face. In this Western ranch-style facility, choose from tents, teepees, cabins, or, as of the summer of 2022, tiny homes.

Franklin House, Boise, ID

If a trip to the city is more of your speed than a wilderness adventure, Franklin House in Boise is the perfect place to stay. As one of Boise’s original “ice houses” built in 1896, Franklin House lets you lay your head in a piece of history.

1909 Train Carriage, Deary, ID

Ever wonder what it was like to sleep in one of those train coaches from ages past? You can experience it (somewhat) by staying in a train carriage from 1909 in Deary, Idado. The restored carriage has all the modern comforts but with a decidedly unique structure.

Ashley Inn, Cascade, ID

If you’re looking for vintage charm, Ashley Inn has it in spades. This gorgeous inn features ornate suites that feel like a step back in time, along with cozy cottages to appeal to anyone’s tastes.
