Concierge.com's insider take:
The first gallery-style garden exhibit in the United States, Cornerstone's nine-acre grounds showcase 20 different walk-through gardens by famed landscape architects and designers. Among the current highlights are a children's garden by Moore Iacofano Goltsman and woven eucalyptus screens by Walter Hood. The garden plot called Earth Walk, designed by Pamela Burton, descends into the grounds, through Mexican feather grass, to a meditation bench by a koi pond. Inspired? Head to the adjacent shops for garden-related wares, including outdoor furniture and sculpture, architectural salvage pieces, tools, plants, and books. Fuel up on coffee and sandwiches at the on-site Blue Tree Café before heading north to the Sonoma County wineries.
Open daily 10 am to 4 pm.
