Lots to look at if you like quirky things. Beautiful views of the water. The tour of the inside of house and grounds was interesting and the entrance fee was reasonable. Way too many mosquitos!! Bring repellant if you can.

This place is worth the stop. So interesting, we were there in the summer and it wasn't too crowded. I have seen a couple others but not totally made from bottles

There is no other place like the Glass Bottle House. The beautiful winding road along the Kootenay Lake, or the longest free ferry ride in the world...they are all part of the gorgeous journey that will lead you to this must-see attraction. Take the time...More
