The Town of Windermere is located in west Orange County, approximately 12 miles from downtown Orlando. Windermere is bordered on the east and on the south by Orlando, to the north by the city of Ocoee and on the west by the city of Winter Garden.
Pristine sand bottom lakes surround this small, West Orange community. The largest lake, Lake Butler, is located on the west, Lake Down on the east, and Lake Bessie on the southeast side of town. The boating enthusiast will revel in the system of canals that connects eleven lakes known as the Butler Chain of Lakes. This chain of lakes makes waterfront living in Windermere a sight to see.
Windermere is uniquely located on an isthmus between several lakes in the Lake Butler Chain. Windermere’s motto is “Among the Lakes,” and it truly is surrounded at every turn by bodies of water, some large and some small. The town draws boating and fresh water enthusiasts from all over the world as both residents and visitors.
The downtown area of Windermere has been designated as the Commercial Business District of the Town of Windermere. This area is bounded by Forest St to the north, 4th Street to the east, Oakland St to the south, and 7th Street to the west.
