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.
Nightly Rate: $140 - $140
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.

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

Wonderful stay where nothing was too much trouble. Ate in town, Paul got out the menus to help us decide before we set off and a map so we could find our way. Superb room Next morning breakfast. Paul made gluten free pancakes so my wife could eat some. We left about an hour later than planned because it was just so nice to be there. Only downside, Susie was away so we didn't meet her because we are sure she is equally delightful

This b&b was the nicest overall. There is nothing we would recommend to change. We have made it our practice to stay away from the traditional hotel/ motels for the past several years, so we have stayed in many b&bs. Susie and Paul were very accommodating,their home is filled with love and laughter, the peaceful surroundings were perfect for having a cup of tea on the front porch in the evening. We loved this b&b and would highly recommend it.

We enjoyed just hanging out and relaxing. The accomodations were wonderful. The whole house was very clean and warm and inviting. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. The Rexroth family is very friendly and always accomodating your needs. We will try it again, maybe in the summer next time.

When our plans changed at the last minute we began a frantic search for a place to spend our weekend. We discovered the Inn at Windmere. What a find! the room was perfect, the large den with fireplace, the snacks, drinks, harp concert, and the food were amazing. The owners are great conversationalist. we are already planning to return when we can get away.

I'm not usually one to follow up with a rating, but when you have an amazing experience,you want to tell somebody! Rooms were immaculate, and breakfast was too die for. My husband and I had a great Valentines weekend and are already planning our next visit.

It really is too bad that you can not give a score higher than a 5. The hospitality and the service provided by Paul, Susie and their family was exceptional.Paul even took the time to clean off the snow from all of the vehicles in the driveway. Our room was beautiful and inviting. The food was yummy! Have already booked our next scrapbooking retreat!

The Inn at Windmere is a lovely and charming Bed and Breakfast. The accommodations are inviting and comfortable, and most conducive to a romantic stay. Paul and Susie are gracious and helpful hosts, and they provide a truly wonderful breakfast. Their "great room" is spacious and beautiful, with many books and a vintage Steinway grand piano. This is a B&B that one will want to return to! And the local museums (Cord/Duesenberg and National Auto and Truck Museums, for example) make it well worth your while to stay at Windmere.
