“Perfect small Inn”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

The Crane Creek Inn is a delightful property in a residential area, but within walking distance to town and good restaurants. I think there were only four units so you felt like you were part of the family and each unit had it's own unique features. The Marigot Suite where we stayed was roomy, tastefully decorated, very clean, with comfortable beds (one bed was a pull-out couch with an air mattress). The kitchen had full size appliances. The heated pool was right outside our door and the included custom made breakfast is served on a deck overlooking the pool, lawn and river - what a nice way to start your day. Andy and Bambi have free wine, water, beer, etc. in the refrigerator and one evening a knock on our door revealed Andy with freshly made chocolate chip cookies! The grounds were well-kept and down by the river there is a little boardwalk with chairs and tables that we gravitated to each afternoon with our glass of wine to watch the pelicans, dolphins, manatees and whatever else came along. There is a hot tub by the river that we didn't try. We went up to the Kennedy S[ace Center one day, and on a boat tour of Port Canaveral another and the drive isn't bad from the Crane Creek as there are several routes you can take for variety. A beautiful beach with free parking is only minutes away from the Inn. This is a very intimate feeling, friendly, peaceful place where you can really unwind. I highly recommend it!

Andy and Bambi are sharing the good life at Crane Creek Inn! They have combined their dream of B&B ownership with their cooking, decorating, and entertaining skills, hospitality and warmth, and ability to anticipate anything a guest would need. We stayed last week, along with our 17 yr old daughter, and loved every minute. The house is gorgeous and absolutely dripping with romance (although it would also be comfortable as a girlfriends getaway or for business functions, etc). From the complimentary water, wine, beer, and soda, along with light snacks and a chocolate "goodie" basket....all the way to beach chairs/umbrellas, and even rain umbrellas in the room's closet in the event of a pop up shower....no detail is left out! We loved the constant, but not over-bearing, mood music playing from speakers around the property - fun "beachy" tunes from Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffet, Bob Marley, as well as cozy tunes that sounded straight out of a Paris Cafe. Landscape lighting, tiki torches, and a full moon (!) made for soft lighting every evening. We were perfectly happy most of the time to float about in the pool or gaze at the creek - full of wildlife - passing by the front of the property. Even our daughter was more content and relaxed than we have seen her in years!

Breakfast is an event, to be sure! Andy is the ringmaster, as if he is doing one of those spinning plates routines! Everything that comes out of the kitchen is plated beautifully and is completely yummy. We were lucky enough to catch a few moments with Andy during some down time, and enjoyed getting to know him a bit and have some light conversation and laughs. He is a great guy. We met Bambi only briefly, as family commitments took her out of town for the week, but she is equally kind and pleasant as her hubby.

We would love to return again, and would recommend a stay to anyone who has something big to celebrate, or is just looking for a place to disconnect.

We just spent a fabulous weekend at this great inn. From the moment we arrived until we left this morning, Andy was attentive without being obtrusive. The property was immaculately cared for, the rooms were very clean and the breakfast was delicious! Lots of restaurants within walking distance. You can also sit and watch the dolphins, pelicans, fish, birds and the manatees from the backyard. If you are in the area, you would be remiss not to stay here.

We stayed at Crane Creek Inn for a short stay while visiting relatives. It was wonderful spending my spare time looking for manatees and interesting birds just outside our room.
Andy and Bambi were great hosts and the blueberry pancakes were outstanding. We were
sorry to leave so soon.

My husband and I stayed at Crane Creek Inn for a short trip to Florida for some much needed R&R! Crane Creek Inn was the perfect spot! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast on the patio outside our Ida Mae room and afterwards headed down to the waterfront with our coffee to watch the dolphins and manatees swim by. Andy also informed us of "the Pelican Show" which happens around 9-9:30 each morning where the pelicans start diving in the river for their breakfast. The sun was warm and the breeze coming off of the river was perfect. In the evenings we headed back down to the water's edge to relax in the hot tub. The property also has a heated pool.

Crane Creek Inn is located within a very short walking distance to the downtown shops and restaurants and is within an easy drive to the beach.

All in all, we had a great stay and would definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: The Melbourne room looked to have the best view from their patio.

The reputation of Crane Creek Inn has reached Sweden. We were recommended this B&B while planning our trip to Florida and we are so glad we decided to stay for a couple of nights. Hospitality, genuineness, soothing surroundings and delicious breakfast...couldn't have been better. Tummen upp!

What more would you want!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best way we could describe Crane Creek Inn. Relaxing, clean, friendly, and easy access to those special things in life (wildlife, quiet, friendly-service and a great homemade omlette). Guess what, you can survive without your hand-held gadgets that rules your life!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try this B&B, you want be disappointed!!!!! We were heading to Islamorada in the Keys, and didn't want to leave this stopover. Retired from Hospitality Industry with 30 plus years of service, Four Star rating from us.
