Windermere House/My World

Windermere House, Windermere, Ontario

My World? Not really. But I did drive by it and take photos of it!

Windermere House is a prestigious Four  Diamond (TOLD you it isn't my world!) resort on Lake Rosseau.  This is actually a rebuilt version of the 1870 Victorian structure as the original was destroyed by fire in 1996 during the filming of the movie "The Long Kiss Goodnight."

For rates, check HERE.

Two strangers

This is more like My World: she's taking photos of Windermere House's front garden and he's looking at his watch.



Visit My World Tuesday  HERE to see tons of photos from around the world.

That must have been an awfully hot kiss.

Kathy said...

I love the building but the second photo is such a classic.

Nessa said...

I think we live in the same world.

Francisca said...

LOL, EG!

Sylvia K said...

Gorgeous building, but I'm with the others, the second photo is indeed priceless! I love it! Have a great day!

LOL at B SQUARED - and at the photo of the strangers!

[EG, we use olive and canola oils too. Also peanut oil for some Chinese dishes, yum! Frankly, I'm still fine with canola, but reeeeeally wish I could more clearly see on the bottle which are made with canola grown from Monsanto GM seeds and which not. And you are so right, the food issues start piling up and eating loses its fun! My approach is the middle way: eat as nutritiously with fresh foods as possible without obsessing.]

Awesome house! It's fun to pose in front just to take photo. Love it!

Rambling Woods said...

I like the guy looking at his watch..been there..seen that...

Leora said...

Ah, well. Nice to photograph it, even if one can't live it.

We once visited the Mount Washington Hotel while on a camping trip... we really felt the poor folks borrowing the fancy bathrooms for a bit.

kaye said...

It would be fun to stay there at least once.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Well, the Windmere House wouldn't be my world, either...but maybe in my dreams! It looks absolutely lovely and I wouldn't mind walking around the grounds and enjoying the sights.

I think the second photo is more accurate than a lot of us would like to admit! LOL!

April said...

Very impressive - too bad the original was destroyed.

Funny second photo - your world.

Nice post!

The long kiss lit the building on fire. :) The second photo looks like me & hubby- "Hon, it's time to go." " Just a sec, one more photo. I don't have this angle yet." LOL

Looks to be a wonderful place to stay, providing there's no fire. B Squared said it right.

The second photo shows the gentleman timing her shots so she can do a panorama. Didn't you know that? ;-))

Gattina said...

What a pretty house ! the couple is too funny, real tourists !

Carver said...

I was going to say that it would be a great movie location and then I read that it burned down while filming a movie. Looks very charming and definitely beyond my means.

Ania said...

Ha ha ha, one has to have an eye to capture those moments like that 'your world' couple.

michael said...

Not my world either, but thanks for giving us just a peak into what the other one looks like. Lovely old house.

Farmchick said...

Beautiful photo of the house, the that second photo is some real life in action!

Bill said...

Nice world you live in. We're flying to Canada on Sunday, can't wait.

Elisa said...

I love the 1st picture. It´s a lovely house!

Craver Vii said...

I checked out the prices. You won't find that kind of pocket change in the sofa cushions at the Craver household; that's for sure.

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

EG: That is a really neat place, I saw a lot of rebuilt structures in Europe that look old.

Life Ramblings said...

what a beautiful house and love the second picture too.

Jack and Joann said...

I love big old mansions.
When we tour them I pretend it is my house. Like I think I'll move that chair closer to the fireplace or we must repaint that bedroom. LOL! I wouldn't do a thing to those pretty red and white awnings.

Al said...

LOL! A hotel like that won't be part of my world either!

Indrani said...

I can relate to that second shot too. :)

Becky and Gary said...

Love it EG. I'll be right up, and take a room at the Windermere Cottage for a week. LOL
Happy RT.

Carol said...

What a great building to photograph. I love the striped awnings and the red roof. The last shot does say it all....LOL.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful structure. The color combinations are wonderful.

Pat said...

Wow--someone involved in that filmaking got into some big trouble! The resort looks gorgeous--they did a great job of restoring it.

SandyCarlson said...

Wow, wow, wow!

Luna Miranda said...

hahahah I love "your world"--similar to mine. my friends and family get impatient when i take photos of everything and they're ready to go.:p

the hotel is charming, love the striped canopy.

J Bar said...

It's marvellous.

WOW! That is a fabulous looking place!

Kaori said...

I love those red&white window covers :D

Michelle said...

What a stunning old building. It reminds me of the Hotel Del in Coronado.

Riet said...

What a beautiful building and your second photo is lovely.

Jay said...

Hahahahaha! Love the photo! That's fairly typical of us, here, too!

The 'house' is gorgeous!

I'm laughing at B Squared, too! Going to check him out!

caughtbymycamera said...

Your second picture really made me laugh. Typical man I would say! I would mind staying in that hotel for a while. First have to win the lottery. But I am working on that ;-)

VioletSky said...

The second photo is why I like to take my photo jaunts by myself!!

George said...

That is a gorgeous building, but the second picture is a classic!

Starnitesky said...

A very impressive building, I like the humour of the second photo.

Rose said...

What a beautiful place...even if I was wealthy, I don't think I would give that kind of money to stay at a place. I would just feel guilty at what could be done with it.

SandyCarlson said...

That's a funny couple! Great shots.

Mark Kreider said...

Word to all of us guys... when you are with your love there is no need to know the time because that is where you want to be, no?
