The Inn At Windmere is a beautifully renovated 1910 country home just 3 miles off I-69 that offers six lovely guest rooms with private baths, 5 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 firepit. 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 pleasureable 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.
Rose Suite: This dreamy, spacious suite, with its elegant decor and cozy fireside nook, king bed and private bath, will carry guests away to another time and place. A blend of buttery cream and luscious rose creates a palette that is both soothing and inviting to the eye. Romanesque decor in the sitting area gives the suite a distinct Venetian flair, creating an expectation to look through one of the wide windows to see rolling hills of vineyards.
Lighthouse Room: Escape to the sea in this ocean-themed haven that lacks only the sound of crashing waves and the taste of salt in the air. Formerly the nursery, the Lighthouse Room is full of unexpected angles that give the quaint feel of a seaside cottage nook. Featuring antique furniture, colors of the sea, a gorgeous pool view, private bath and an enchanting lighthouse painting by a local artist, this peaceful room is sure to provide a relaxing retreat from the outside world.

Paul and Susie are gracious hosts, everything was immaculate. We got a good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast to prepare us for a day of museum browsing.

Paul & Susie have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay delightful. We stayed in the Windmere Suite which is a beautifully decorated, elegant, spacious room with a very comfortable bed. Also has wonderful, very large bathroom. The linens are pure luxury! No details are forgotten. Their entire inn is awesome! And to top it all off is a delicious breakfast.

Just got back from our stay at the Inn at Windmere. If you value perfection in all things, then this is your place. Stay there, and you'll see what I mean. My only, admittedly minor, personal, quibble would be the aforementioned perfection. The house and rooms are antiseptically clean (my finger came away spotless when brushing the top of the doorframe!). The decor is unreproachable. Wi-Fi was a bit slow, but that's not why you're here. I find the little flaws you get in older B&B's charming, but you won't find any of those quirky flaws here. Everything is modern, up to date, and works. As for the Rexroths, they have mastered the art of being hospitable without hovering, providing fine breakfast without ostentation, living as Christians without being intrusive (unlike another inn/retreat we stayed at in PA). If they were to go public, I'd buy stock in a heartbeat!
