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".

This was our favorite stop and if your lucky to catch it on a well sunlit day, you will be in for an incredible visual treat as the light from outside reflects through the bottles and into the house. This is a photographers paradise.

Very original attraction. Three buildings to visit. Don't plan on being there long about 20mins. Worth the stop and don't leave your wallet on the car its not free, but what is these days?

This attraction is out-of-the-way, but definitely worth checking out! I've never seen anything like this before. The bottle houses were truly a labour of love! And the gardens were fully in bloom and lovely. There is a very nice gift shop as well, featuring pretty glassware. A great place for avid photographers! The colours are amazing.

This is a fun stop about 30 min after you cross the bridge into PEI in cap- Egmont. The late Edouard Arsenault built 3 bottle houses around beautiful gardens and waterways. Very enjoying stop for the whole family. Do not miss the books in the middle house that shows how he built the houses.

I went there just to see bottle houses but I found a peaceful and relaxing place with bottle houses. They have a wonderful garden, a beautiful mini-lighthouse and a complete gift shop. Recommended!!!

Went here on a trip from Ontario with my mother - the Bottle Houses made for some very unique photos! View out to the ocean is beautiful, as are the gardens out back. A lot of love obviously goes into maintaining them. Plenty of spots to sit and relax. Only thing missing is a cafe so you could get a... More
