Crane Creek Inn Waterfront Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Melbourne B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 January 2014

What a wonderful afternoon and evening we recently spent at the Crane Creek Inn Waterfront Bed and Breakfast! We stayed in the Marigot Suite. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Open the door and the beautiful pool is right in front of you. The made-to-order breakfast Andy prepared was great! Then, we enjoyed a cup of coffee while sitting out on the deck by the river. The hammock and hot tub are just a few steps away. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing time, this is the place for you! Andy and Bambi are very gracious hosts and they will exceed your expectations! Great room, great hospitality, great location! You'll love it! Worth every penny! This was our second visit and it won't be our last!

Room Tip: The Marigot suite was very nice. Plenty of room to spread out for up to four people.

My husband and I stayed at the Crane Creek Inn in Melbourne, Florida, over a long weekend to celebrate our son's graduation. The inn is outstanding, and you could not wish for a better host. Andy greeted us as soon as we arrived and served us a delicious made-to-order breakfast each morning. His world-famous blueberry pancakes truly are delicious, and so are his vegetable omelettes. He's very down to earth and easy to talk with, as is his wife Bambi. One evening she surprised us by giving us some fabulous home-made chocolate mousse. Our room was so charming and comfortable that I could have stayed for weeks. The view outside our window was really beautiful. Andy and Bambi were even gracious enough to let our adult children spend several hours with us one night on the patio playing a board game. We look forward to having a good excuse to visit the Melbourne area in the future so we can stay at this inn again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor. It was quiet and beautiful, but if you like to sleep later in the m...

Great getaway. It's beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. It's a perfect place to relax. We saw a couple of dolphins and plenty of local birds. We even saw Andy catch a small stripped fish of his dock. I have to eat Gluten Free and Andy made sure he had gluten free bread for me for toast for breakfast. Highly recommend this Hidden Gem .

Crane Creek Inn is a fabulous B&B with Inn Keepers who are both professional and friendly. The rooms are delightful with very nice bathrooms. The pool area is beautiful and our patio was just perfect for relaxing and sharing lovely time with our friends that joined us. And of course, very good wine! We enjoyed walking to the Historical District of Melbourne which offers many fabulous restaurants and cute little shops. Our room, The Melbourne, was on the Crane Creek where we enjoyed watching the wild life. Creek is misleading; more like a river! Each morning we had a delicious home-cooked breakfast by the Inn Keeper and wow...whata good chef! His pancakes are out of this world! If you are considering a vacation in Melbourne, you cannot go wrong with the Crane Creek Inn. We will be back!

We needed a one night stay in Melbourne before we hooked up with old friends there and were delighted to find this lovely B&B. It was immaculate, and lucky us--we were the only people there that night! Crane Creek is filled with lots of amenities but we got there too late to enjoy them all.
The pool setting along the river is stunning and the location near Melbourne's historic district was great. Our meals at ISLAND PASTA were outstanding!!! Andy was a great host & guide to area.
Thanks for the memories!

We wanted to get away from Orlando for a few days just to chill out and relax. The location was perfect. It was located right on the water with plenty of places to just sit and enjoy. We loved watching the mullets jump in the water. It was only a block from the historic downtown so we were able to walk there and do some shopping. The room was spotless, beautifully decorated and private. The pool was beautiful and the landscaping made it even more enjoyable. The breakfast each morning was wonderful. Andy was a great host. It was worth every penny!

I was a little leery because we had never been to this area before, but it was AWESOME! Andy accommodated a last-minute scheduling change with a smile. There is an awesome library, tons of patios with gorgeous views, and the entire property is immaculately spotless. Breakfasts were fresh and delicious and there is wine, soda, and water FREE all day! There are tons of funky little shops- including a delicious fudge shop- restaurants, etc all within a few blocks. It was sooo relaxing here, we didn't want to leave! The pool was like bath water and spotlessly clean.

Room Tip: I think the Melbourne is the best- it has it's own private patio and it's tucked away behind...
