Overview
More
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".

A stop at the Bottle House not only provides a beautiful view of the bay, but also a quirky collection of buildings created from discarded bottles. I promise it will make you smile. And wonder why someone built it!

Not for the pretentious. The Bottle Houses and garden are amazing. When inside the buildings, and the sunlight filters through the different coloured bottles, an almost spiritual ( no pun intended ) aura is created. We were a group of four, and all of us...More

Nice stop and interesting to think about the person who constructed the 4 buildings using bottles (many from the dump) and concrete. The grounds are well landscaped...the whole property is the result of a lot of work. I'm not sure, however, that this stop would...More

We were glad we made the decision to stop here. The houses are beautiful and interesting to look at. The kids were amazed with the different older bottles they hadn't seen before and excited when they noticed ones they did recognize. We would visit again
