Glass House

Unusual? Curious? One of a kind? Take your pick - made from over half a million embalming fluid bottles, the Glass House is an ode to these jars. Located conveniently between Creston and Crawford Bay, this roadside attraction offers paid tours seven days a week from May through October. The cloverleaf structure weighs over 250 tons, is 48 feet in length, 24 feet wide, and features 1,200 sq ft of floor space. Hundreds of flowers decorate pathways around the house and down to a lookout with spectacular views of Kootenay Lake, while a mountain stream brings to life an enchanted garden.
