Recently recognized in USA Today's Ten Best Series as one of the top 10 places to stay in Melbourne, Florida! Crane Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast is the Melbourne area’s only true waterfront boutique B&B, 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 into 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, dolphin, alligators, and over 35 species of birds from our waterfront boardwalk while enjoying a complementary beverage (adult or otherwise). 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 comfortable furniture for dining or just relaxing with a good book. Unlike many B&B’s that offer only 1 or 2 hot breakfast options, we want our Guests to have choices, and allow you to choose from over 10 hot breakfast options daily.

Great location and a nice house. Breakfast was excellent. We used the pool and hot tub and had Karen bring kayaks for a paddle up Crane Creek. Other than the occasional train, the house was very quiet, no boat or traffic noise.

My wife and I had a wonderful long weekend at The Crane Creek Inn. The location is ideal, the accommodations and amenities lovely. Local restaurants were excellent. We walked everywhere, enjoyed the porches and the hot tub, and watched the pelicans diving for hours. Andy was a great host. We would definitely recommend this B&B!

For a trip over to Melbourne to visit with childhood friends we needed a place both close to downtown and dog friendly! How lucky were we to find the Crane Creek Inn! Everything about this Inn is beautiful. Run by friendly, laid back couple Andy and Bambi Durik, the house and surrounding yard are inviting and comfortable, so much so that we spontaneously decided to increase our stay by another night! While we did not do it ourselves, another couple went out on the water in kayaks for some fishing and the waterfront view is delightful! Manatees, fish, a variety of birds, even a nice gator swam by... and our pup enjoyed the yard area very much! I will definitely return and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, clean place to retreat to!

This delightful and charming B&B was a dream come true! Would recommend highly. The property and rooms were beautiful ... the breakfast outstanding. Close proximity to restaurants (5 minute walk) and airport (7 miles). The owners take great pride in their B&B and it showed. Thank you, Andy & Bambi for your hospitality.

Andy cooks one mean breakfast with several choices for each individual. Our room was roomy, cheerful, and comfortable. The pool area is large and refreshing and the beverage amenities can't be beat. We had wine, beer, colas and water for our enjoyment 24hours. The walking distance is 2 blocks to downtown. Jeff and Linda will return for sure to Crane Creek Inn in Melbourne.

A must stay if visiting beautiful Melbourne. Hosts Andy & Bambi have created a spectacular getaway whether near or far from them. Grounds have heated pool, rafts, hot tub, hammock, beautiful Crane Creek with amazing sunrises. Gaze on heron, manatee, ibis, egrets, and watch earl risers- gators, in creek. We love Melbourne Room with private porch complete with wicker settee and rockers. Each room has special features so just choose what you desire most. Breakfast outstanding with yummy selections prepared by Andy. His famous blueberry pancakes are a must try with Paul Bunyan size blueberries, Look forward to his chocolate chip cookies as an afternoon treat. Just a very short walk to shops and restaurants in Melbourne. Quick drink to beach also. Pictures on website show much of charm but you must experience in person! Enjoy!

Beautiful views, charming decor, lovely landscaping, amazing blueberry pancakes, a perfect place to hang out on the porch with my Mom - we saw dolphin, rowers, osprey. Andy is a natural at being a host & it shows! He offered to give me the recipe for the pancakes but I think I'll just let him fix them next time we stay at the Inn!

What a pleasant surprise Crane Creek B&B was for my husband and I during our recent stay. Exceeded my expectations in every way. Andy and Bambi are the perfect innkeepers. Exceptional chef that Andy is, cooked my eggs exactly the way I requested and service on our own screened in porch overlooking the water. Wonderful. Given the opportunity we will go back.

Crane Creek Inn was by far the most relaxing Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed in. The Royal Palm Room was beautiful, loved the wood floors and the paint color and we had our own front entrance. Thank you Andy and Bambi for everything from the fantastic breakfasts, cookies at night, wine by the river and walking distance to many delicious restaurants. We'll be back!
