At The Cornerstone Bistro, Chef Benjamin Thorpe composes a different menu every week based on the fresh, seasonal ingredients made available by local farmers. Specializing in northern Italian and fusion American cuisine, he transforms Mother Nature’s organic offerings into rustic small plates, innovative entrees, and homemade desserts, such as pies and tarts aromatic enough to hang from a car's rearview mirror. A weekly chef's table slides Chef Thorpe’s edible handiwork further into the spotlight, inviting diners to gather for a lineup of specially prepared courses during meals outfitted with specific themes.
Because no two body imprints are the same, Mattress Land’s on-deck relaxologists use exclusive bedMatch diagnostic technology to determine the ideal snooze position for each customer, as well as the ideal mattress. Comfy cushions come from premier brands such as Simmons, Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Laura Ashley, and SleepFit, and shoppers can upgrade to latex mattresses or mattresses with My Side technology, which accommodates the differing body types of spouses and accidentally conjoined mad scientists. After a good night's sleep, patrons find that joints ache less and that dreams last longer and contain fewer calculus tests. Staffers perform free local delivery and removal for purchases $599 and up, so customers and their unwanted bedding can avoid awkward goodbyes. Every mattress comes stamped with the store's own 100-day Comfort Guarantee, which gives dissatisfied customers full credit towards a new mattress.

Nestled on a sloping, well-manicured hillside, Ste. Chappelle Winery transports visitors to a gothic chapel in France.

In the warmer months, crowds gather with blankets and bottles on the lawn for live music events, held as part of a summer concert series.
