Inn at Windmere

2077 County Road 40 , Auburn, IN 46706 USA (Show map)


The Inn At Windmere is a beautifully renovated 1910 country home just 3 miles off I-69 that offers five lovely guest rooms with private baths, 4 with king beds. The peaceful, elegant setting makes it a favorite place for a romantic getaway, while the convenient location and affordable price offer it as a good choice for travelers passing through. The Inn has 2 large rooms with all the amenities needed for scrapbooking or quilting weekends, business meetings or church retreats. Indoors are cozy fireplaces, grand piano, home gym, ping pong, and free wi-fi, while outdoors one can swing on the wrap-around porch, stroll around the beautiful gardens, take in a sunset from the gazebo, or enjoy a s-more at the fire pit. The Inn At Windmere is close to the World War II and car museums for which Auburn is famous, numerous quaint shops in downtown Auburn, and many other attractions that will give anyone a pleasurable visit. Our goal at the Inn is to meet the needs of each guest so they can leave feeling refreshed and pampered--that they have experienced a true get-away.

Our retreat

Our host are fantastic people. 4th retreat we have had there and the accommodations are beautiful and the work space for quilting is fabulous. Highly recommend the Inn at Windmere for a group retreat.

Another wonderful retreat

This was our fourth annual quilt retreat here and it was wonderful, as always. Both the sleeping and work rooms are superior. I can't think of a single thing that could improve. I can't wait to return!

Our first B&B Experience

We enjoyed our stay very much. Susie and Paul's hospitality far exceeded our expectations. The food was well prepared and delicious. The room was beautiful and clean. We will definitely be back.

Perfect B&B

Inn at Windmere is a real treasure - convenient to Auburn/Fort Wayne and beyond, but with a country setting. The breakfasts were fabulous and the hospitality is warm and comforting.

Everything Delightful!

Everything about our stay was wonderful! My family of 5 (3 young children) all stayed in the largest room and felt very welcome and accommodated. The owners are a lovely family, and we even got to hear the harp played! I love the extras and pampering that made our stay so special. The room was very clean and nice.

Wonderful experience!

This is the second time our ladies' group stayed here for a church retreat. It was as wonderful as the first time. Everything was perfect and comfortable. Paul and Susie Rexroth are the best! I highly recommend!

A lovely get away.

This is a lovely inn. The suite was spacious and very clean, and the hosts were friendly and took care of every need we had. The breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this place to my friends and family. I was pleasantly surprised! The car museum nearby was a great side trip too.

What an absolutely wonderful spot. This was a gift to each other for our wedding anniversary. Paul and Susie are outstanding hosts. T The entire inn is pristine. Breakfast was so good we did't eat again until that night.

Terrific Scrapbook Retreat Weekend!

Never having stayed at a bed and breakfast before, I wasn't sure what to expect. But my goodness, what a wonderful experience! The rooms were very nicely appointed and the bed was so comfortable. The food was delicious and the owners Paul and Susie could not have been better hosts. I'm looking forward to many more scrapbooking weekends with family and friends at the Inn at Windmere!

Excellent retreat for scrapbooking

Five friends and I stayed here Oct 3-5. The rooms were comfy, clean and had amazing views. Food was superb. Paul and Susie were wonderful hosts. I stayed in the Windmere Suite which had a fireplace; t.v; walkout deck; ensuite bath with granite counters, just a fabulous, warm and inviting place to stay! I would highly recommend this place for scrapbookers looking for a weekend away and also as a bed and breakfast ! I hope to visit again soon! Linda from Ontario Canada
