My husband & I searched for weeks to find the perfect vacation spot near the ocean, quiet & without kids (even other people's!) A lot of complaints we saw regarding big resorts were cleanliness & having to deal with loud children/college students & huge parking/towel/beach usage fees on top of booking rates. My husband was a little nervous to try a B&B thinking there may be a lack of privacy, but I booked it anyhow & we are so glad we did.

We chose the largest room (Marigot Suite) with the full kitchen & door straight to the pool. It was the perfect room choice for us.

The entire B&B is decorated as if you just walked into a Better Homes & Gardens magazine. It was quirky, interesting & done so well. We were very impressed with the maintenance of the inside & outside.

I cannot emphasize how CLEAN it is. I am kinda a germaphobe & I am not exaggerating when I say you would be hard pressed to find a speck of dust in our room. I honestly meant to take a picture of behind the sink & toilet, as it was so clean you could have eaten off the floor. Housekeeping was respectful & consistent & exceeded expectations.

Andi & Bambi & family are helpful, friendly & available without being annoying, nosy or pushy. They were really cool people & had plenty of great advice on things to do & what you may want to skip in the area. They even have a local massage therapist available that will come out to the Inn :)

We stayed the entire week of July 4th & were the only people around to catch the fireworks, which you have a perfect view of from the hammock/hot tub. It was the first July 4th I have been able to spend with my husband who is often deployed & it was amazing & memorable.

The deck furniture is all clean & heavy-duty-no cheap stuff. Plenty of room for all guests- we played some games on a gorgeous, slightly windy evening & got to see dolphins putting on a show for us in the creek. I have never seen one so close!

We did the beach one day, Andy was kind enough to have umbrellas & beach chairs on hand, not to mention towels.

The pool was clean & had floats & a built-in seating area & was well-lit & pretty at night.

Complimentary water, pepsi, wine, etc. was awesome & unexpected.

Breakfast was included & a great start to every day. I am pregnant & Andy made sure to cook all my eggs/meat etc. thoroughly. Omelettes "all the way" were delicious & on "lighter" mornings fresh fruit was appreciated. Coffee available at 7 in addition to selection of juices.

I would like to say please realize the extremely few bad reviews this B&B has are from previous owners, Andy & Bambi have worked very hard to make this place a gem! Please also realize when reading the reviews that some people are absolutely impossible to please & will find fault in things beyond the owner's control such as the weather or something else silly.

You will absolutely not be disappointed if you are looking for a romantic, quiet getaway!

Room Tip: Marigot suite :)

We only stayed the one night at Crane Creek Inn but Andy's hospitality from the moment we arrived until our depature next morning was excellent. We could not fault the Ida Mae room which was superbly decorated and extremely comfortable with its own veranda/ deck overlooking the creek and pool area.

We sampled Andy's pancakes at breakfast and in our humble opinion they were the best we had during our tour of Florida in addition the complimentary drinks were a welcome surprise and much appreciated - something which we have not found in many other B&B's.

Crane Creek Inn is located within 5 minutes walk of the historic downtown area of Melbourne with plenty of restaurants - menus available for these from Andy.

The only slight issue was we initially drove past the house - missing the sign on the side of the building - however this in no way detracted from our stay and teaches you not to trust the GPS !!

We were looking for a respite and a chance to refresh and renew ourselves. Crane Creek Inn was the best place we could have chosen. The historic home has been renovated and redecorated. Every room had a bright and cheerful atmosphere. The yard and grounds are beautiful. The boardwalk by the intercostal waterway was a great place to sit and watch the wildlife. (fish, manatee, dolphin) The pool and the hot tub were great. Andy makes the most amazing breakfasts and the quaint old town of Melbourne was only a block away. There were exceptional restraunts to choose from. Bambi and Andy are gracious hosts and delightful people. We stayed 3 days and would love to go back.

Great little B&B. Weather was bad for much of our stay, but sitting on the veranda and wildilfe watching kept us busy. Manatees, osprey, dolphins, and tarpon were there everyday.

Nice people and a great little downtown with shoppes and lots of restaurants. Only negative was not the Inn but the downtown which caters heavily to smokers with numerous cigar bars and outdoor dining that allows smoking.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Melbourne room which offers the best privacy.

We chose this place to spend our wedding night and the night following. I had called ahead and asked Andy if gluten-free breakfast would be available for my wife and if he could provide a congratulatory card or small token in our room for our arrival. He far exceeded that expectation by having a large plate of cheese, fruit, and chocolate, and a nice note in our room upon our arrival. Our room (Ida Mae) was decorated very well, the bed was soft, the bathroom was excellent, and the inn was maintained to a very high level. In the mornings, Andy cooked us wonderful made-to-order breakfasts, and we saw fish, turtles, and a manatee on the water. We just missed seeing a dolphin on one morning. Overall, this was an outstanding property, and I highly recommend it to anyone in the Melbourne area.
