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".

Cool Site!

It was our first trip to the houses and they were really cool. Can't imagine the hours of work and thought that went into creating it.

What a great experience - way beyond my expectations! I am the inquisitive type: why? how? when? what is special about where I am? The Bottle Houses did that for me. And the gardens, also what a beautiful piece of manicured nature! The place is immaculate, the staff are friendly and you will enjoy a stay of about an hour.... More

This is such an interesting place. To see these places built out of bottles was amazing. You have to stop in just to see how beautiful the gardens are. The buildings are really interesting too!

We stopped here on the way to the West Point lighthouse. My wife had read about it in the tourist packet sent to us by the PEI tourism department. We received a quick overview and historical background from the builder's grandson, who just happened to be in charge when we dropped in. Then we went out into the sprawling gardens,... More

This is one of the best little hidden treasures on PEI -- we would have stayed for a picnic if we had one with us! Unique and unusual structures made out of cement and a huge variety of bottles -- 3 are houses, inside there was a bar and church pews and altar. The gardens are beautiful as well. A... More

Unique and fantastic little detour on the island for only a few bucks! The bottle houses were amazing, the garden's were beautiful and one of the houses even had a book that described all the various plants in the garden. It was a really cool experience and beautiful scenery. It's a great backdrop for all kinds of photos! So glad... More

This was much better than we expected. Of course, after a quick walk through my husband was sooo done, but my mother loved it. The houses are interesting, I love any situation to play with my camera, and my mother loved the gardens. They are very well done, lots of pretty flowers to photograph. Worth stopping for.

A very unique stop! You can't miss the giant bottle made of bottles at the entrance to this little hidden gem. Once you walk through the rear entrance you are quickly enchanted not only by the buildings that are made up of approx. 30,000 glass bottles, but the pretty gardens that surround them as well. Once inside you will be... More

Beautiful attraction and gardens - thank you to the tourist information in Summerside for the recommendation! It's wonderfully maintained and put together, with staff who are incredibly welcoming. We had a great time wandering around at our own pace and taking lots of pictures. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here during a recent visit to PEI, and were glad we did. The bottle structures were an amazing creation. There weren't many people there, so we were free to wander about at our leisure. The grounds themselves were worth the visit. Many well-manicured bushes and flowers, etc. There was a gift shop where mementos could be purchased. Again,... More
