The Bottle Houses, Wellington

A village-like set of ingenious structures, The Bottle Houses use recycled glass bottles and mortar to create unusual pieces of full-scale buildings. Architect Édouard Arsenault dreamed up three fanciful "houses": a gabled house, a tavern, and a chapel. The elaborate, intricately manicured gardens make the perfect setting to admire Arsenault's work. Take a camera along to capture this idiosyncratic attraction, and survey the small pond to see some resident koi fish. Start your trip to Wellington by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • A fun place for a short trip. The gift shop had a lot of interesting things and the prices weren't bad.
  • Pretty cool eccentric little place. Not sure it's worth the price of admission, but pretty neat nonetheless!
  • What a great use of old bottles. And the gardens are spectacular too.
  • the oh so unique ahead of time premise built by Arsenault ... he was a true recycler ...
  • Someone had the courage to follow his dream. Great place to visit
