“Great weekend stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

This B&B was just wonderful. The rooms and the view were magnificent. Andy provided an awesome breakfast every morning. The only issue is there is a train track nearby but was not too much of an issue. Andy has a fresh herb garden on property, so each morning our plates were accompanied with a sprig of fresh parsley. The weather was cold while we were there so each morning the fireplace was going in the dining room. The decorations of the whole B&B were just wonderful. Everything flowed so well. The complimentary wine they have on stock was also very good! There was also background music playing throughout that was tropical and put you in the mood for relaxation!

Hubby and I stayed at Crane Creek Inn for the last two nights of our 25 day trip around the coast of Florida. Naturally we were a bit 'down' as our fantastic trip was coming to an end. But staying at Crane Creek was the icing on the cake AND the cherry on top ! Andy even managed to get us a reservation at the most popular restaurant in Melbourne on Valentine's night within the hour !

What a lovely home, great interior design ideas and colours by Bambi and the help yourself coffee/tea/ soda/beer/glass of wine is a wonderful gesture. The bed was amazing, so comfortable and the Inn offerred so many options for either sitting on a porch in private, or next to the pool, or overlooking the Creek watching the dolphins, or in the hot tub.

Previous Reviewers have mentioned the night trains going past, but they didn't worry us, we were so relaxed and knew we could choose to lie in bed late and before 10am be enjoying one of Andy's freshly cooked breakfasts.

Andy and Bambi have really gone the extra mile. Great fast speed free Wifi plus the ability to use the pc and printer to print off our Boarding Cards made the whole process of flying home less frenetic and I would certainly recommend staying here as it is a great place and so close to Orlando airport.

Great room overlooking the river in Melbourne. Service was great, food was fantastic. Try Andy's world famous pancakes. Couple of trains pass by quite close during the night but was a curiosity rather than a bother.

We've stayed in many B&Bs and this is now on the top of our list. We will definitely return. Andy is a great host! The breakfast were made to order and fresh each day. There were plenty of places to sit outside and eat breakfast in privacy if you prefer. The scenery from our room was spectacular. We viewed dolphins, manatee and many coastal birds.

Our three daughters bought us a night at the Crane Creek B&B as a Christmas gift. What a great gift! Andy and Bambi are very gracious hosts! They pay great attention to detail. The room was exquisite, including the Jacuzzi tub! Andy will fix you a great breakfast! Lots of amenities. The beautiful pool looks out to the river where you can relax and enjoy your favorite beverage. It's nice and quiet here. Nice restaurants and places to visit in the local area. You will enjoy your time here! We will be back!

Room Tip: The Ida Mae room was perfect for two! Bring your favorite DVD to watch.

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect; good food--made to order, king size comfortable bed, good proximity within walking distance to town of Melbourne and close drive to beaches, very clean and 'homey', great swimming pool and yard that overlooked the river with fantastic view. Our room had its own private patio and had much privacy. Our hosts were very nice and took the time to sit down and talk. We will go back!

Room Tip: We found the bottom floor room with the patio was the most private and best.

Wow!!! What an amazing time we had at the Crane Creek Inn. Ingrid and I traveled just eight minutes from our house for a little "get-a-way"...we had no idea how beautiful our time would be here!! Everything far exceeded our expectations!! From sitting down by the creek amidst all the wildlife, to the immaculate condition of every part of the property, to Andy's blueberry pancakes and Bambi's infectious smile and hospitality....thank you so much!! Could go on and on about this place. W are going to return and try each room. We stayed in Royal Palm and it was awesome. Can't say enough about this bed and breakfast....telling ALL our friends!!! Thanks again!!
