We stayed here 13 years ago - different owners, but liked it then. Enough to go back for a special birthday weekend this month. Such a good decision. With Andy in charge, and professionally designed interiors by his wife, the place was awesome. The photos are true. Beautifully appointed rooms, and important to everyone, extremely clean. Comfortable beds, nice and... More

We chose the Royal Palm room, intially because it seemed a smaller room (and I thought it was the prettiest) and I was going to stay there on my own, but my husband was able to join me. It was lots big enough for both of us and was every bit as beautiful as its pictures and nice and cool... More

We went here in order to do a day of rock climbing at a near by gym. Figured, it would work out ok. We were so pleased with the impeccable service and attention to detail, we would gladly come back and stay many times a year. Andy manages this place from the heart and it shows. Best B&B I have...

We chose the Crane Creek Inn partly because of their Adults only policy (a few days of the year for Mom and Dad to get away). We had such a wonderful time! The inn had everything you could ask for. The inn was spotless! On the creek was a nice breeze, comfy chairs, and a great Jacuzzi. The pool was... More

Andy manages his B&B inn perfectly. We stayed there for 2 nights to have an off-site planning before going to a conference at a beach front hotel. The crane Creek Inn exceeded all our expectations. Each room is equipped differently, very artful and nice, and Andy was always around when needed (he resides in the neighbor house) and left us... More

Off the beaten path, Crane Creek B&B has all the important accoutrements required for the perfect B&B experience. Andy and Bambi know what they're doing and they do it very well. I did not want to go and given the opportunity would return in a heartbeat.

A class act. We enjoyed our stay at the Crane Creek Inn. It butts right up to the Crane Creek with loads of wildlife at your door- to include daily dolphin and manatee sightings. The 4 rooms are great- very clean and well equipped. The pool is clean and the hot tub is perfect. There is a full breakfast included... More

Crane Creek Inn is delightful; it's cozy and quaint with tons of charm. What a lovely find. We were in the Melbourne room which was perfect because the heavens opened just as we arrived and we were able to sit outside on our porch, nicely protected, with a glass of wine as we viewed the canal, the rowers and the...

This is our second time at Crane Creek and will stop again. We know that the Melbourne room is our first choice but the Ida room has the similar view and you do not have to go up and down stairs. Only disadvantage is that dining room is outside the room. The Melbourne room is quiet and close to the... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this terrific B&B in Melbourne, FL. We had the Royal Palm room and it was very roomy with a nice, large bathroom and shower. Our room had a screened in porch/deck that overlooked the pool with a great view of Crane Creek off of the intracoastal waterway. We saw a lot of... More

We are located directly on the water and an easy 1 block stroll to Historic Downtown Melbourne.Why drive to dinner and/or drinks? At Crane Creek Inn you can walk to over 10 fine dining and casual restaurants, and over 8 relaxing and fun bars/clubs – most with live music. Our beautiful, tree-lined Downtown also has four blocks of unique shops and boutiques; from Antiques to Fine Art, Women’s clothing, jewelry and more.Our Guests are awestruck by our beautiful grounds, and the serene pleasure of observing the manatees, bottlenose dolphin, alligators, and over 50 species of birds from our waterfront boardwalk while enjoying a complementary beverage (adult or otherwise). Bring your kayak or have one delivered for a truly unforgettable experience on the water.We offer our Guests an abundance of amenities. Our Guest rooms, each uniquely decorated with a tropical, Key West flair, all have private entrances and private baths. Luxurious 700 thread count linens on our Queen and King beds and top of the line soaps, shampoo and conditioners. Most rooms have a private deck or patio with very comfortable furniture for breakfast dining or just relaxing with a good book.
