Pristine sand bottom lakes surround the town of Windermere, a small west Orange County 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, fishing and water enthusiast will revel in the system of canals that connects eleven lakes that range in size from 25 acres to 1614 acres. Known as the Butler Chain of Lakes, this chain was designated by the Florida legislature as “Outstanding Florida Waters.”

Windermere was bestowed its name from Dr. Stanley Scott, whose father purchased 160 acres in this picturesque location in 1885. Dr. Scott built his home on the shore of Lake Butler, and it is believed by many that he named this town after England’s famous Lake Windermere.
