On the way to Lake County for my latest family vacation, I took a leisurely detour to Cornerstone Gardens where I visited their wine tasting room. What a welcome way to cool down on an otherwise painfully hot day! I could instantly see why this place is such a draw for weddings: The outside sculpture garden, which is encircled by lush flowers and art, is simply stunning.
One thing I didn’t realize until I was actually there is that Cornerstone is far more than just gardens— it’s an unexpected shopping destination. Under a canopy of shady trees resides a row of intriguing furnishing stores where you can find pieces to complement any design style: organic materials, shells, light fixtures, tables, windows, or even mermaid statues!
