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
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.

Perfect Cottage in Sonoma!
We really enjoyed our stay at Kathleen’s cottage! It was quiet, quaint and cozy, and had everything we needed for our stay. Everything was as described and as pictured, the cottage was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend to any couple looking for a romantic getaway, we will be back on our next trip to Sonoma!
My best friend and I took a girls trip to Napa for the weekend and stayed in this cottage. This place was absolutly amazing and perfect. The cottage was clean and well maintained. The decorations made it feel so homey and relaxing. We really enjoyed the back patio and hot tub. It’s very close to many of the Sonoma wineries and town area, where we had dinner both nights! It’s also about a 30 minute drive to Napa. I’d highly recommend for any couples or friends taking a trip to wine country!
lovely, quiet cottage
We have a perfectly lovely weekend in this charming cottage just a short drive from the center of Sonoma. Very nicely appointed, cozy, in a quiet neighborhood. A bottle of wine was waiting in the refrigerator when we arrived--really nice touch.
Just a couple of small items: the hot tub in the back was more lukewarm than hot, even though I turned up the temperature as high as it would go. And the internet was quite slow. We finally gave up on it.
But neither of those things really detracted much. Highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to send a review our way. Just a few items to address: I apologize for the hot tub not reaching the right temperature for you. I noticed it somehow was put into ECO mode which only allows it to reach an economic temperature. I manually changed it back to the correct mode for future use. Regarding the internet being slow. I adjusted the megabytes so there should not be that problem in the future. Thank you for bringing these items to my attention. It is very much appreciated. Think of us again in the future!
Wonderful Cottage, peaceful
Darling cottage, perfect for a couple, wonderful furnishings, very thoughtfully done!
We enjoyed our honeymoon at the Farmhouse. It was peaceful, but a short drive to down Sonoma. We loved the bikes during the day and patio at night. We hope to return to celebrate another anniversary. Kathleen is an exceptional host.
Thank you, Emily, for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words.
Please visit us again in the future!
Nice property close to town
The farmhouse is very nice and had everything we needed for our stay. It is a little misleading to see the pics that make it appear to be on a large vineyard. It is very close to town and is on a neighborhood street with the vineyard just being in the front yard basically of the property. Didn't really get the feel of staying at a vineyard which was fine just a little disappointing upon arrival. That being said, the farmhouse was clean and very quiet for our stay. We enjoyed the hot tub and we could get to dining and shopping in about 5 minutes. Was a nice place to stay for a weekend getaway.
Thank you for your review, Lisa. We appreciate you taking the time. We are considered rural residential in the county of Sonoma which is not a typical "neighborhood" street. As you can see in our video, being amongst the 2 acre vineyard, is not mis-leading. Any guest is welcome to walk in our family vineyard and/or sit and have their morning coffee or glass of wine in complete privacy. We hope that you had a wonderful visit and will return to visit Sonoma wine country in the future.
