Step into a realm where whimsy meets wonder at the Bottle Houses and Gardens, nestled in the heart of Cape Egmont, Prince Edward Island. This hidden gem, born from one man's vision and passion, has become a testament to creativity, sustainability and craftsmanship.

This unique and magical attraction invites you to explore an enchanting garden landscape dotted with captivating structures crafted entirely from recycled glass bottles, each telling a story of creativity and environmental consciousness. As you wander through this kaleidoscopic wonderland, let the sunlight dance through over 25,000 colorful glass bottles, casting vibrant hues and creating a serene ambiance that's both uplifting and inspiring. From the mesmerizing Bottle Houses that seem to emerge from fairy tales to the tranquil gardens that bloom with life, every corner promises a new discovery.

A Glimpse into History

The origins of the Bottle Houses started in the early 1970s when a retired horticulturist named Édouard Arsenault embarked on an ambitious project to create something truly extraordinary. Inspired by the glass bottle structures he had seen during his travels, Arsenault envisioned somethings similar within the coastal landscape of his home province.
