I can only repeat what other people have said. Maureen is the most lovely person you can hope to meet. Loved the house. Loved the Room . Loved the setting . Loved the pool. Due to a tight itinerary we were only there for one night but felt that we had known Maureen for years by the time we had... More

This is a completely wonderful B&B. You can't go wrong here! Maureen is fantastic and super friendly, everything is clean and the house is BEAUTIFUL. Whether you are hiking all day at Zion or want to kick back and relax, this is your place. Oscar's is also a great restaurant for breakfast or dinner - they have big portions and... More

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

It is beautiful and spacious. There is a lot of drawer and closet space. Free wifi is available. The room has a flat screen, mini fridge, and a... 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
