Andy was so welcoming and generous. In the morning, he served us delicious fresh fruit, tasty omelettes, and pancakes with big fat blueberries, all cooked to order! We stayed in the Melbourne Room and enjoyed breakfast out on the veranda, in front of a beautiful view of Crane Creek where wildlife is abundant. In the evening, I relaxed with a...

My husband and I stayed overnight at Crane Creek, and it was simply wonderful! The room, the bed, the location (right by the river!), and the wonderful hospitality of the owners, Andy and Bambi, made for a great experience. The breakfast was one of the best we have ever had...Andy's special Blueberry Pancakes are to die for! We stayed in...

My husband had to be in Melbourne for business, and because of some health isuues, he could not drive for the first few days of his trip. The dog and I went along therefore as "drivers". The dog's presence is what led us to the discovery of Crane Creek Inn. Because of their pet friendly room and lovely lawn that...

We stayed twice at Crane Creek: the first time had been booked via the Internet and we did not know the accommodation, or the area, but had picked it so that we could go to NASA. It was an easy drive from Orlando. Wow, when we arrived, the creek was an impressive estuary, with lots of pelicans and terns fishing....

This B&B had everything we were looking for, and then some. The place is lovely -- all the rooms look out over a spacious lawn that sweeps down to the riverside. The view is fringed with royal palms, and the river is daily filled with various wildlife -- pelicans swoopjng and dipping for fish, cormorants, and even dolpins. To complete...

This is a charming Inn to stay at especially if you're traveling with a pet. Our golden retriever loved the big grassy back yard area. He even made friends with the golden next door who came over for a visit. The best part of staying in the Melbourne room was the outdoor covered porch with enough seating to enjoy hanging...

Crane Creek is a historical home which has been converted to a bed and breakfast. The innkeeper-cook is Andy Durik, a very outgoing transplant from Ohio. The Inn sits on Crane Creek, a tributary off of the Indian River. It is full of wild life....manatees, dolphin and all kinds of birds. On our last visit we even saw an eagle...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Crane Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast is the Melbourne area's only true waterfront boutique Bed & Breakfast, and the only B&B with a heated, full size swimming pool. 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. And bubble away your stress in our hot tub, located on the water's edge.
