Windermere is surrounded by pristine sand bottom lakes that are linked by a system of canals. Lake Butler is the largest of eleven lakes referred to as the "Butler Chain of Lakes." Recreational opportunities abound and many homes in the area have direct lake access.

Much of Windermere's "downtown" area is historically preserved and well worth a visit. The excellent quality of life is its most distinguishing feature. Many town streets remain unpaved as part of the resident's effort to retain the prestige nature of the chain of lakes.
