Orlando vacation home buyers who appreciate luxury living, an abundance of water activities, and close proximity to area theme parks often find themselves choosing property in Windermere. The southwest Orange County town is just minutes from Walt Disney World and features some of the most affluent waterfront real estate in Central Florida.
Windermere is known as the “Town Among the Lakes” because it is located on an isthmus between several lakes in the Lake Butler chain of lakes. These beautiful lakes provide much of the appeal to full and part-time residents, who enjoy a variety of activities such as championship fishing, lake cruises, boating, canoeing and kayaking.

The town was chartered in 1925, but its history goes back much further, to 1889 when two Englishmen, the Rev. Joseph Hill Scott and his son Dr. Stanley Scott, started a settlement on the shores of Lake Butler. The town’s oldest structure is a one-room schoolhouse from that era, which has been restored to reflect its place as a site for educating children of citrus grove owners, workers and farm hands.
Today, Windermere features a quaint city center with charming shops and cafes, as well as a number of outstanding golf courses, such as The Golden Bear Club at Keene’s Pointe, designed by golfing great Jack Nicklaus and Isleworth, designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer.
