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 very big but there...More

I went to the Bottle Tree Ranch with a group of photographers to photograph the displays. We spent about three hours on the property and even spoke with Elmer. There were lots of visitors including international visitors. Well worth the time spent. Admission is free.

Something different but enjoyed our visit which we found both interesting and amusing. Did not see the owner on premises and could not find a tip jar. A large collection of bottles and articles of many types and varieties including old guitars, kettles, cash registers...More

It was fun to finally stop here and see the bottle tree ranch for myself. It certainly has a little bit of everything and is interesting. I don't think you can see it all in one visit and it's a nice distraction from the road.

No, not on site. This is essentially someone's front yard. I do remember passing some restaurants on that street though I think.
