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... More

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... More

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 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... More

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.

This B&B was absolutely perfect for celebrating our wedding anniversary. We didn't want to book a hotel because we wanted something that had more charm and where you could find yourself alone on the grounds, Crane Creek nailed it! The grounds are beyond charming, spotted manatees in the river, enjoyed coffee with our sunrise riverside or on our private porch.... More

My husband and I visited Crane Creek Inn at the end of April. The location is absolutely perfect and breakfast was delicious.

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.

Also included daily are fresh fruits, juices, cereals and sides.Crane Creek Inn offers complimentary 24-hour beverage service, which includes sodas, water, coffee, tea, beer and white and red wine (please drink responsibly).
