3 lifesize structures made of over 25 000 recycled glass bottles surrounded by serene and colourful flower gardens, truly a paradise on earth where nature is at its best, along the shores of beautiful Northumberland Strait. Glassy boutique. Unique.
The Bottle Houses have become a not to be missed tourist attraction located on the North Cape Coastal Drive in the western part of Prince Edward Island. Visitors to the site receive a "Message in a bottle" that guides them in their tour of the houses and gardens, providing information on the history of the attraction as well as relevant information on the site. Visitors can spend as much time as they want on the site. A very interesting gift shop is also on the premises, featuring lots of glass and garden themed items, as well as sand souvenirs, local crafts and PEI souvenirs.
The Bottle Houses are located in the midst of the Acadian Evangeline Region where music and culture is the essence of the population. Several festivals and musical events throughout the summer season often become other highlights of visitors to this area.
