Three fantasy-like buildings made up of approximately 30 000 recycled glass bottles of various colors and sizes, surrounded by beautiful flower gardens. A haven for nature lovers, recyclers and photographers. The late Edouard Arsenault built the structures in the early 80's, spending the last four years of his life in this amazing project - family-run for over twenty-five years. Featured in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" and "1000 Places to see before you die".

We were not going to stop, but glad we did! It's worth the admission, and you can make this a quick stop for some unusual photos. Nice gift shop and gardens to enjoy after the bottle houses.

Slightly off the PEI main grid, the Bottle Houses are located on the coast of Region Evangeline. Three structures made from recycled bottles are set into an elaborate garden with several native and imported flowering plants. There is also a small pond with koi. Although the houses and their geographical setting are beautiful, information about them is sparse. One pamphlet... More

We made a beeline here to go see the Bottle Houses before closing time when arriving on PEI. The gardens were beautiful and in bloom. We found the three structures on the property very unique and well worth taking the time to see and explore. Take your time. There's lots of nooks and crannies to explore while visiting there.

This is a very interesting place to see which will not take too long to visit. The houses are unique with challenges to keep youngsters interested. The gardens are spectacular!

Stop by and visit, you will not regret it. Please take the time to read the story of how and why the Bottle house was constructed.

Yes, it's touristy, but it's still a neat place to explore. You have to admire the effort that went into creating so many glass structures. Stand in the bottle houses when the sun is shining through - what a neat effect!

It was very interesting to see a unique spin on recycling. Because most of the bottles are from the 80's, it was bit of a stroll down memory lane. The setting is beautiful with the gardens and ponds, etc. They have a wonderful gift shop with a lot of unique treasures.

We went to the bottle houses because my daughter loves that kind of thing. It was pretty cool. You can imagine how much work went into it. There's nice gardens there as well. Small kids will get bored within 15 minutes or so but it's a nice little place. It was $18 for a family. A little pricey for what... More

Really fun place to see. several buildings made basically of bottles and really beautiful gardens. We were a little hesitant at first but was recommended by one of the staff at our hotel. The admission fee was worth it. The chapel and tavern were fascinating, fun to identify where the bottles came from
