About Kathleen Horner

I am a local wine grower who loves to share the beauty of Sonoma with friends and family. I have lived in the Valley of the Moon for over 34 years. I have grown to love and appreciate Sonoma's fine history and lovely vibrant colors of green fields, blue skies, harvest vines and the radiant harvest moon.

Kathleen Horner purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Kathleen Horner chose Sonoma County

This property has a unique history. It used to be a chicken farm back in the day. There was a huge fire that swept through the valley. This property became known as the Lucky Finato property which was the only one spared in this area. The property sits on an old creek bed facing the eastern direction of the valley. We have since planted a vineyard back in 1999 of cabernet in honor of my father, Francisco Roberto Maestas. My father had always wanted the family to stay together and live and work on a vineyard. Since his work took him to New York, the dream never happened. Until we moved to the property and planted the vineyard and named it after my dad. Dad now lives in Sonoma and loves to walk the vineyard and be a part of harvest.

What makes this cottage unique

Come and walk the vineyard and sip some wine from our vineyard. Enjoy the hot tub and the beautiful valley of the moon in the evening. Sit back, relax and enjoy the private back patio off of the master bedroom.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

Like you, I did my research before booking this property. I read reviews, liked the photos and the location of the property. After my initial communication with Kathleen, which was prompt and easy, I booked the cottage for four days of sight-seeing and wine tasting.......and very happy I did! This place is better than the pictures. Every little detail was thought out from a fully stocked Keurig, to water bottles, shampoos, soaps, etc. We took advantage of the hot tub and charcoal grill on the back patio. The cottage is CLEAN, very private and perfect to chill and relax. Close to Sonoma Plaza and many wineries, we were happy just to hang at the cottage. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. We will be back!!

The owners were very friendly and had excellent communication. The property was absolutely delightful, surrounded by the vineyard and the bed was heavenly. The decor was classy and simple, which contributed to a relaxing vibe. We'd stay here again for sure.

We wouldn't change a thing! Perfect for our first visit to Sonoma/Napa.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property when visiting the area for the Napa to Sonoma 1/2 Marathon weekend based on the reviews and photos and were not disappointed. No detail was spared by the owner, Kathleen, in making us feel welcome and comfortable. The setting on a vineyard was perfect for that "away from it all" feeling yet we had easy access to Downtown Sonoma and the roads that took us further afield for countless wine tasting opportunities, wonderful restaurants and scenic picnic spots. The hot tub under the stars was the perfect way to end our busy days. We would love to come back one day!

I have stayed in many VRBOs throughout the USA and Europe and I will say this was by far my most favorite of all. My only regret was that I did not book additional days to truly relax before and after my best friend's wedding. Every single detail in this lovely cottage was designed to instill comfort, peacefulness, relaxation, and utter bliss - "ahhhhhhh" - I literally walked in the door, gently placed my bags down, turned in circles with my jaw dropped. I took in the most beautiful and tastefully decorated living room, kitchen, bedroom (oh! the bedroom) bathroom. It is obvious Kathleen takes pride in every square inch of this cottage. The bed is Oh. So. Comfortable. You will not want to leave - EVER! You are surrounded by a vineyard - there's a fountain in the front yard. Oh, I can go on and on. I will definitely return. This is definitely Heaven on Earth. Thank you, Kathleen. You are also as beautiful as your home.
