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.

Rooms & Rates

Rose Suite

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.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King

Lighthouse Room

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.

It was perfect

5 on July 19, 2014

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.

Wonderful Stay!

Wonderful and relaxing getaway

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.

A Valentine joy

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.

Spectacular getaway!

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.

Exceptional hospitality

5 on February 12, 2014

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!

A Wonderful Stay

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.

Wonderful crafting getaway

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.

Truly Outstanding!

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.
