Thanks for taking time out of your busy life to review our B&B! I wanted to add that in addition to the wildlife mentioned, one of our kayaking Guests spotted a new alligator cruising the creek (a little 4 footer-and we saw it from the boardwalk later too). The last time we saw alligators was about 2 years ago, but...

One of the few places in the World that I have given a score of 5! We intended to stay here a couple of nights to explore the surrounding area but the Crane Creek Inn is so good we walked no further than half a mile from it and then wanted to get back! The atmosphere is great, every room...

So relaxing! We stayed just one night, but didn't want to leave this very quaint and well decorated Bed and Breakfast, right in our own hometown! This B&B is right on Crane Creek, and the manatees, pelicans and dolphin are all around; love taking in all the wildlife! Andy made us an amazing breakfast, even though we did not try...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, Andy, who showed us around and inquired about any food allergies. He cooks all of the breakfasts made-to-order and they are wonderful!!! We were so happy with our room, our outdoor patio area, the heated pool, the relaxing chaise and hammock and the wonderful view of the creek that had entertaining diving...

We stayed in the Crane Creek Inn, Melbourne whilst touring in Florida. This bed and breakfast is situated on the river which runs through Melbourne. We had a room which faced the river and were able to sit and watch dolphins, turtles, fish jumping and lots of birds. Our room was quite large with a very nicely furnished patio. Breakfast...

This place has everything you need for a laid-back retreat in laid-back Melbourne. We put in our kayaks from the inn's dock, swam in the heated pool, enjoyed complimentary wine (offered all day long) and enjoyed the sunrise from our front porch. We will return!

The hospitality and property itself are amazing. Waterfront on Crane Creek – gorgeous. I saw ospreys, manatee, lots of different cranes, jumping fish, all kinds of birds, including a zebra woodpecker, etc. You can sit comfortably by the waters edge all day, if you want. The pool is private and lovely. Well situated property is only one-and-a-half blocks from New...

We only live 20 miles from the Inn, but it felt like we were in Key West. Beautiful property conveniently located within walking distance to the heart of downtown Melbourne! We stayed in the Marigot Room which was huge and adequately supplied for an extended stay. Andy very graciously let us check in early since no one was in the...

We left our post-hurricane chaos behind us, and spent a night at the Crane Creek B&B. Andy was so friendly, also let us check out a little later, so we could have a last minute dip in the pool. We stayed in the Ida Mae room, which was great, open French doors onto our own deck overlooking the pool and...

Very nice property with comfortable accommodations, excellent breakfasts and terrific location with easy walk to old-town Melbourne activities and dining spots. Loved the waterfront views, the hammock and the pool. Great spot for a quiet getaway for a week or a quick weekend escape.

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.
