Stayed here for four nights... Maureen the owner is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. She welcomed us with open harms and a hug. She gave us a tour of the B&B inside and the backyard with pool. The room we stayed was clean, organized, and the bed was very comfortable. For breakfast she gave out vouchers to... More

Maureen greeted us with a hug and a tour of her lovely bed and breakfast. Our bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was large and spacious. It's about a seven minute drive to Zion's National Park. She gives out breakfast vouchers to a couple of places in Springdale. By the time we left, we felt like we had made... More

How can you not love a place where you are greeted with a hug?! Maureen is so kind and patient. She left us a voicemail to let us know she and her husband would be away for about 1/2 hour in case we arrived then. When we arrived, she showed us to our room and made sure we had everything... More

Located just outside of the touristy bustle of Springdale, the Desert Thistle is a nice, quiet retreat at the end of the day. We stayed 6 nights, taking time each day to explore in and around Zion, Kolob Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Grand Staircase-Escalante. It was nice to return each night to our peaceful room at the B&B. We also... More

We felt right a home at this amazing little B&B. Our room was spacious and had a luxuriously comfortable bed. The views from the back of the house by the pool were also impressive. Maureen's warm hospitality made our stay even more memorable.

We stayed 2 nights in this B & B which was about 10-15 minutes from Zion National Park. You could drive to Springdale and take the shuttle bus into the park or drive into the park and take the shuttle from there. The B & B was festively decorated for Halloween and Maureen was wonderfully welcoming when we arrived, albeit... More

We were fortunate to find this B&B at the last minute in mid-August (18 &19) and were quite amazed that we were the only guests for the 2 nights. The owners, Maureen and Warner, were terrific and the accommodations were comfortable and sparkling. Given such a brief stay we didn't take the opportunity to use the common area, pool or... More
