  • I absolutely loved Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch! Mr. Elmer started creating this unique place 17 years ago, and he’s so kind to share it with everyone! It was so much fun, walking among the “trees” and e...  more »
  • We planned this as one of the sites to see as we were driving to Vegas. Elmer has been putting it together over the last 15 years or so. My advice is, take your time and explore it. The ranch isn’t ve...  more »
  • It is already very bizarre what has built Elmer himself over the years on his estate. If you are on the Mojave FWY 15 you must leave the car and switch to route 66 to look at the property. It is recognizable in many photos a collection of bottle trees and all sorts of other things like z.B old typewriters, lamps, machine guns, signs, etc... Ultimately, every man for himself must decide whether he looks at this place. It costs no admission. The detour from the FWY on the road z.B is approx. 1.5 hours from Las Vegas to LA.

  • Unbelievably random and amazing! The bottle tree ranch is an incredible art installation off Route 66. If you're driving on the 15 and have some extra time, definitely stop here.
  • Awesome experience at a very unique place. I felt like I was instantly stepping back in time when I passed through the front gate. The bottles range from new to decades old. The designs and art forms are all unique and different and are perfect for photos. Also, it was convient that it right on route 66 and you can park right on the side of the Hwy.
  • Great place to enjoy someone elses junk and lost treasures made into beautiful pieces of art. The owner just received a gift of a wishing well we where the first ones to make a wish 💟 love this place lots of color and history. Very nice.
  • ✔ We Met Elmer! He has a long white bear and he was so NICE! He DOESN'T know that he is PINNED on Google or pinterest. He said " People, even international people just show up. I don't know how". That was so cute ✔ The Bones are real His father used to be a collector and once he died he kept collecting. BRING him a gift if you can. Anything. He will be happy
  • Free attraction, a can't miss along Route 66. Parking is a little tricky - along the roadside. Creative art installation, worth a visit. While dogs are allowed on the property, be mindful that this is a GLASS bottle tree ranch. Broken shards everywhere. Take care with pets & kids.
