We had the pleasure of staying two nights with Maureen and Warner. They anticipated every need and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Our room was tastefully decorated,and the lofted luxury of the pillow top mattress was extremely comfortable (especially after we spent the day hiking the Narrows). We didn't take advantage of the outdoor pool... More

We were thrilled when we arrived to find the Desert Thistle even better than we expected. Zion was our primary destination and our lodging was secondary but the pool, jacuzzi, luxiourious bed and beautiful room became a highlight. The park and free shuttle service were only a few minutes away and the owners had great recommendations for restaurants. I would... More

My wife, Joan, and I stayed with Maureen and Warner in June 2014 during our visit to Utah from the UK. When we first arrived and Maureen and Warner greeted us and showed us round their lovely house we couldn't stop smiling. It is lovely, relaxing and the perfect base for exploring Zion National Park. Maureen and Warner are both... More

This was the most lovely place we ever had in the USA. Maureen and Warmer were so kind in every way you can think of. For me, i am Dutch, it is a little hard to express my gratitude and warm feelings we experienced during our stay with them. We did have some problems finding another B&B or hotel because... More

This Bed and Breakfast is immaculately clean with beautiful furnishings and has a backyard pool area with amazing views. Warren and Maureen were wonderful hosts and my husband and I thoroughly enjoy visiting with them--a delightful couple. I highly recommend a stay at the Desert Thistle.

My boyfriend and I had the best time on our roadtrip so far. Maureen and Warner were so friendly to us and helped us if we needed anything and gave us some advice for good experience in Zion National Park. Our room was great, very pretty and clean, and a lovely bed. So we would deffently recommend it to all... More

Beautiful B&B hosted by a knowledgeable and friendly couple who have the interest of their guest uppermost in mind. Rooms are decorated effectively with an individual bath. The backyard pool setting is a perfect environment to enjoy the setting sun.

We needed a place to stay during Memorial Day weekend and this was the only place open. We called to see if they had any vacancies not knowing what this place was. Maureen was so sweet on the phone so we came right away before they filled up. We pulled up in the driveway and instantly loved it! We chatted... More

This was the first of many stays for us. The hosts are friendly and the service is amazing. We stayed in the emerald pools room and it was absolutely charming. There's a beautiful, clean pool in the backyard to use and for breakfast you receive vouchers for a nice restaurant near the park. I would recommend the Desert Thistle to... More

Your charming hosts, Maureen and Warner, have transformed a mistreated architectural gem into an attractive and well designed B&B. The views are outstanding and the rooms are immaculate and well decorated. We did not have time to partake of the refreshments and views in the sun room, but our next stay will correct this error. Maureen is a wealth of... More
