This was recommended by a lady at Caribou ferry terminal visitor centre, Nova Scotia. Although it was drizzling heavily, the light coming in through the bottled walls is amazing. There was no-one there when we arrived, but you just wander round at will. Donations go to charity. Well done!

Wow, this is a really cool place to visit, with all admission donations being given to the IWK children's hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The creator was very friendly and advised us that to date he has been able to donate over $37,000 and his goal is $50,000 - be sure to give a good donation if you can!

All of the buildings are created for or in memory of family and friends, and each structure tells you how many bottles were required.

A sight to see on a bright day!!

We stopped in with our young children as we were staying close by for the week.. The attraction is free but you can donate to charity. This place is really cool as they have several small houses and buildings made of empty glass bottles. There is also a nature trail that is marked through the property that takes about 10 minutes. The kids loved it! If you are in the area stop in and check it out!

This little village is awesome. There are around 10 houses, together with a lighthouse. Every house has its own theme. Houses are small, perfect for kids, yet still interesting and cool for adults. Lots of funny little things like a rock that predicts the weather :)

The only difficulty we had was finding it! For future reference: the address is 1696 Point Prim Rd. Also, bring mosquito repellent. The mosquitos there are vicious!

We were on our way to point prim lighthouse and saw the sign for the bottle village. We are so glad we stopped in. It is by donation. Our kids loved it and we were amazed by the amount of work that must have gone into building the village and all to support a great cause. I would definately recommend a stop! Would live to know how much this has raised to date.

Like others, we were unaware of this stop, but were on our way to Point Prim. The open sign was up, and since it was early in the tourist season, not too many things were open, so we were excited to have someplace to visit. The gentleman who has built the village was genuine and friendly and curious about those of us who stopped. It was lovely to walk around and hear his desire to help sick kids. Donations received go to the sick kids hospital in Halifax. (IWK Health Centre)

This one has not made the travel books....maybe because it does not come with an admission charge. We happened upon it on our way to Point Prim lighthouse.

There are a number of "buildings" each with a different "theme" located behind a residence. Plenty of parking available and donations taken to be given to a children's hospital.

Recommend stopping when in the area.

A friend told us about these bottle houses and we were delighted to see them! Each is a unique structure, dedicated to honor a grandchild or someone the builder wanted to recognize. Each story is special. The bottle houses are located in a very picturesque location and are worth the stop while you are on your way to see the Point Prim lighthouse. Such a fun visit and a very worthwhile donatio to the IWK.

We were driving to see Point Prim Lighthouse and zoomed past the sign that said "bottle village" I knew there was one on the Island but thought it was in a very different part of the Island (there is in Cap-Egmont) but after visiting the lighthouse we stopped to see this one. It is amazing! All these buildings made from bottles, a church, school and other buildings. The cost is by donation, which we happily made. I understand that other one is larger - but if you're going to see Point Prim lighthouse stop by and see this!
