The Bottle Houses, Wellington

Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This was buried at #9 on the list and really needs to be highlighted. I like something other than churches, lighthouses and shore. All originally built by Edouard Arsenalt. Very amazing with concrete ...  read more »
  • Pretty garden and three little houses that a man who collected bottles created long before there was any recycling of glass. There was also a small replica of a lighthouse. Tiny little gift shop also ...  read more »
  • Several "houses" made with bottles. About 25-30 THOUSAND bottles used. Interesting, with and interesting past. 
  • In my humble opinion, I don't think it was worth an entry ticket. Not $7 per person at-least. Donations only would be better for what we saw. Very small...You wouldn't walk more than 100 meters. Just 3 houses made of old bottles, 1 miniature lighthouse. I wouldn't make a special trip just to see this. If you are passing by anyhow, and don't mind spending to explore whatever's there, might wanna stop by. But to travel several hours just to see this might be a disappointment.
  • It's worth the small entry fee to see the clever use of various sizes, colours and types of bottles. I must have been a painstaking task to collect, clean and sort them all before turning them into buildings and statues. I'm glad we stopped in.
  • The houses were interesting to look at and the gardens were well kept
  • Fun little stop when touring the west end of PEI.
  • I loved the visit
