Crane Creek Inn Waterfront B & B

907 E. Melbourne Avenue , Melbourne, FL 32901 USA (Show map)


Recognized in USA Today's Ten Best Series as one of the top 10 places to stay in Melbourne, Florida! Crane Creek Inn B&B 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 15 fine dining and casual restaurants, and over 10 fun & friendly bars – most with live music. Our beautiful, tree-lined Downtown also has 4 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. Clean, crisp linens on our Queen and King beds and complimentary soaps, shampoo and conditioners. Free Wi-Fi and parking. All rooms have a private deck or patio with very comfortable furniture. 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.

Perfect rest and relaxation B&B

5 on April 24, 2017

This was the perfect place for some rest and relaxation. Beautiful view with lots of wildlife. Saw dolphins each day, some manatees, jumping fish and various birds. Andy and Cleo were the best. Andy served great breakfasts on our time table and even went above and beyond to make us some thing when we had an early start. Walk to the quaint town and restaurants was so convenient. Hope to get back again. Excellent!!!

Great Location-Relaxing

Great value and service

There are a lot of B&B out there but it has been my experience that when it comes to B&B the Innkeeper is key between making the stay merely pleasant or one that is great. In this case our stay was great due to the attention and service provided. We love it.

Absolutely Wonderful!!!!

We arrived to this lovely B&B for a 2-night get-away and immediately upon meeting the owner, Andi, we loved the place. What an inviting, charming and beautiful establishment. When Andi asked us if we had any food allergies and my husband replied that I was a vegan, Andi immediately explained what he was able to provide for the made-to-order breakfast. After we saw our room, our outdoor patio and the heated pool we knew this was going to be a great trip! Watching the pelicans dive all day long and Manatees swim past was just an extra bonus! I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone - you will not be disappointed.

February Getaway

5 on February 07, 2017

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Crane Creek Inn. This quaint Inn is located in a perfect waterfront spot that is within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants in downtown Melbourne. Crane Creek Inn is very welcoming and relaxing with a wonderful outdoor pool area that has incredible views of Crane Creek and all it's amazing wildlife. We stayed in the Royal Palm which was beautifully decorated and had a screened porch where Andy served us our delicious breakfasts. We couldn't have asked for anything better for our stay in Melbourne and will definitely be returning!

Outstanding, what a wonderful B&B!!

Our stay at Crane Creek Inn exceeded all our exceptions! First, the location could not have been better for us; we were visiting family but also hoped for a bit of a romantic get-away for ourselves. We took full advantage of the easy walk to restaurants and various local establishments, was great to be able to get out and stretch our legs and enjoy the scenery and mingle with other friendly folk. Secondly, the accommodations easily exceeded are expectations; the rooms were cozy and spotless. We had the Ida Mae room, very private, cozy and romantic, with our own private deck overlooking the pool and river. Most importantly Andy was the perfect host, ensuring we are comfortable and our various needs were met. Thanks Andy, we had a great time, good to have met you. We will be back for sure!

Such a wonderful experience! Can't wait to return!

This place was perfect for our little get-a-way. Andy was incredible and one heck of a cook! The room was lovely, especially the decor. We loved lounging by the pool and our morning kayak ride. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to be impressed!

Great Escape!

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 room the night before and let us take our time checking out. Sitting on their chairs overlooking the river was so relaxing. While we didn't go to the ocean side, it is conveniently located to the bridge and just a short trip to the beach. We highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast.

Quiet and relaxing

We spent two wonderfully relaxing days at Crane Creek Inn and will be more than happy to return in the future. The room was clean and comfortable, the grounds immaculate, the pool was fabulous and the home style breakfast was right up our alley. Within walking distance to shopping and dining. We've been to a lot of bed and breakfasts and this one is really worth the stay.

Wonderful place to stay! Bring binoculars!

4.0 on July 18, 2016

Room was great and Andy was laid back, which was much appreciated. Lots of osprey, manatees, ibis and herons to watch. The setting is lovely, well maintained, clean and lovely. We will stay there again on our next visit,
