The Crane Creek Inn is a delightful property in a residential area, but within walking distance to town and good restaurants. I think there were only four units so you felt like you were part of the family and each unit had it's own unique features. The Marigot Suite where we stayed was roomy, tastefully decorated, very clean, with comfortable beds (one bed was a pull-out couch with an air mattress). The kitchen had full size appliances. The heated pool was right outside our door and the included custom made breakfast is served on a deck overlooking the pool, lawn and river - what a nice way to start your day. Andy and Bambi have free wine, water, beer, etc. in the refrigerator and one evening a knock on our door revealed Andy with freshly made chocolate chip cookies! The grounds were well-kept and down by the river there is a little boardwalk with chairs and tables that we gravitated to each afternoon with our glass of wine to watch the pelicans, dolphins, manatees and whatever else came along. There is a hot tub by the river that we didn't try. We went up to the Kennedy S[ace Center one day, and on a boat tour of Port Canaveral another and the drive isn't bad from the Crane Creek as there are several routes you can take for variety. A beautiful beach with free parking is only minutes away from the Inn. This is a very intimate feeling, friendly, peaceful place where you can really unwind. I highly recommend it!
