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 El Verano
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.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Kathleen really went above and beyond with the details of the house. It was immaculate, beautifully designed and very welcoming. We enjoyed the hot tub and back patio and the quietness of the area. We also loved how environmentally friendly everything in the house was. We had a couple very minor issues and Kathleen was very apologetic and top of everything. I would highly recommend this house and would love to come back one day.
Thank you, Heather and Al,
We appreciate your kind words and hope that you will return to visit! Have a wonderful summer!
Amazing home away from home
We loved our stay here and would love to stay here again in the future! As advertised it was peaceful and private, very well kept, and very clean. Loved the king size bed and it was very comfortable. Thank you for the bottle of wine and perfect home away from home!
Thank you, James! We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Please visit us again in your future travels!
Perfect Wine Country Stay
Beautiful and quaint cottage in a lovely setting. The bikes provided allowed us to ride into town and to local wineries. We enjoyed the secluded hot tub. The host conveneiently provided coffee, tea and creamer which we thoroughly enjoyed. The host was friendly and attentive to the few questions we had. This is the first place I would try to book when we come back to Sonoma.
This property met or exceeded all of the expectations that my wife and I had on our anniversary weekend getaway. It was beautiful on the inside with a stunning fountain and vineyard out front. If you are going to Sonoma you could overpay for a hotel room or pay LESS for this fantastic rental. It's where I will return if my travels find me in Sonoma again.
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this rental on our long weekend getaway to Sonoma. It was a cute place with all the essentials and the hot tub after a long day of traveling was the perfect touch. It's not as secluded as some other options were but that made it so much more convenient to get into town. Kathleen is particular about the treatment of her rental so make sure to read all the materials and instructions provided. There is plenty of natural light, which can get bright in the mornings. We were happy to start our days early but if you like to sleep in then I would recommend bringing an eye mask. Beautiful area and home, I would highly recommend!
We lucked upon a gem in Sonoma
My wife and I come to Sonoma every year and have stayed at quite a few of the nicer properties in the area. Without question, this is now our favorite and we can't wait to come back! Tucked in next to a vineyard, this beautifully and well appointed 'cottage' has everything you could want .. serenity, charm, quiet and comfort. Thoughtfully decorated and quality throughout. In addition, it is only a few minute drive to downtown Sonoma. A real gem. It was truly our pleasure to stay here. Gordon and Ruthie Johnson, Scottsdale, AZ
Thank you, Gordan and Ruthie for your kind words! Please come back and visit us again next year. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
