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.

This was not only me and my husband's first time in Sonoma County, but our first time using VRBO. We could not have been happier with our choice. From start to finish, our experience with Kathleen was first class. The cottage was beautiful and I have already recommended it to all my friends. The pictures do not do it justice.

Charming cottage in Sonoma. Perfectly appointed with thoughtful touches.

  • 5 of 5

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*

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

I have rented several other Sonoma VRBOs and this has been by far the best. Great location, layout, setup, everything. The patio is great for coffee and evening and the hot tub is great to relax in. Private, quiet, clean, well stocked, close to everything Sonoma. Just book it!

Every detail of this property has been looked after. We enjoyed the back sitting area with the barbecue and the hot tub. We loved visiting Sanoma Valley and hope to be back. Thank you Kathleen.

Our Vineyard Farmhouse Cottage stay was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kathleen,

This cottage is even more delightful and well located in person! The decor is charming and cozy. It is well equipped with great amenities including the plush bedding, Problem-free internet, A/V entertainment choices, relaxing veranda and hot tub, bikes, and a full size washer and drier. The welcome wine, coffee supplies and bath amenities were much appreciated. For colder weather, it has a bedroom heater as well as a heater/fireplace in the living room. You almost wish for bad weather! We definitely plan to return to this cozy vacation hideaway!
