About Windermere, FL
The Town of Windermere is located in southwest Orange County fourteen miles southwest of Orlando,
six miles southeast of Winter Garden, two miles south of Ocoee, and approximately six miles north of
Walt Disney World.
Windermere is surrounded by sand bottom lakes. Lake Butler (the largest) is on the west, Lake Down on
the east, and Lake Bessie on the southeast. By means of a system of canals, Butler, Down and six other
lakes are connected to form what is known as the Butler Chain. Windermere is a lovely small town that
will continue to be limited in population growth by available land.
