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.

Gem off the beaten path in Wine Country
This is the perfect couple’s getaway for those wanting a quiet, yet romantic time together. It’s far enough away from the touristy spots in Sonoma that you can relax, but only a 5 min drive to the store or other amenities if you need anything. The private spa and kitchen sitting area are comfortable and perfect for morning breakfast and winding down after a day of wine tasting.
Thank you, Roger, for your kind review. Please come back and visit us in the future!
This was our second time staying and loved it even more. Cute, clean and cozy.
This little cottage is fantastic. It is very roomy and perfect for 2. It was extremely clean, which we highly appreciated. Close to Sonoma area. Awesome bottle of wine greeting us when we got there. Highly recommend.
Thank you, Kristi, for your kind words. Please come back and visit us again in the future!
Charming cottage in Sonoma. Perfectly appointed with thoughtful touches.
We enjoyed a mother-daughter week in wine country. The second half of our time was sent at this delightful cottage in Sonoma. We had easy access to shopping, eateries and wine venues. The cottage itself is as described and extremely comfortable. The place is spotless and perfectly maintained. The outdoor space and hot tub are a nice area to come "home" to after a day exploring. I can recommend a stay here without reservation and hope to return in the future. Kathleen is easy to communicate with and her attention to detail is superior. Thank you for a wonderful stay! 5*
Owner, Kathleen, was great to work with and provided us with a perfect getaway. Cottage is well maintained, very clean and comfortable for two. Jacuzzi and outdoor seating area is a bonus. Very quiet and peaceful location. Just off the beaten path but only minutes from everything Sonoma. My wife and I will return again.
Thank you, Matt. You're kind words are very much appreciated. Please come back and visit us again soon!
Perfect weekend getaway!
My fiance and I really loved our Presidents Day weekend getaway! (2018) Not only because we were on vacation, but because the cottage was so lovely. Private setting, minutes away from downtown...I am really big on clean, and the place was spotless. We had everything we needed in the cabinets and cupboards if we wanted to grab groceries and snack. If not, the restaurants were nearby. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us, and there were also water bottles in The fridge. The bedroom was delightfully cozy, bed was big and comfy, big screen TV when you just want to stay in and chill, because trust me this place can definitely entice you to do that! The hot tub in the back was very nice for a relaxing dip and water massage. The cottage was every bit deserving of 5 out of 5 stars!!!
Thank you, Melvin, for your kind words. Please come back and visit us again in your future travels!
