About Rachel Cummins

Kevin and Rachel met in Austin in 1985 and married in 1996. After adventures in Grapevine, Texas and Monterey, California, they moved to beautiful Old Town Georgetown with their two girls.

Rachel Cummins purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Rachel Cummins chose Texas Hill Country

Rachel's dream to open a bed and breakfast is being realized in an unexpected way with the opening of the Sweet Lemon Inn. Part of the original plat of Georgetown, this historic property was built in 1918 and remained with the original family for more than 60 years. Following Horace and Carolyn Sweet (yes, Sweet!) purchase and restoration of the property in the 1980s, it became a commercial property in the 1990s. When Kevin and Rachel were introduced to this lovely property, they realized it was ideally situated for a Cafe and Inn. The Sweet Lemon Kitchen opened downstairs for catering and special events in August last year. Stay tuned for more, as we open the cafe downstairs later this year!

This was our 2nd year & we like it so much we've already booked for next year. Perfect for our girl's trip. Plenty of shopping & restaurants within walking distance. The accommodations are very clean, cute & comfortable. The sandwiches are wonderful.

Beautiful place, great for my whole family

  • 5 of 5

The Sweet Lemon Inn is a perfect place to stay in Georgetown. It's just one block to the downtown square and surrounded by great restaurants and eclectic shopping. The Inn is beautifully decorated and every detail is accounted for. The beds are very comfortable and we all slept great. Check in and checkout were fast and easy. The owners are easy to contact and very responsive. My wife and I rented the whole place and had plenty of room for us and our three young kids. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Georgetown.

Fabulous Stay at the Sweet Lemon Inn

  • 5 of 5

The Sweet Lemon Inn proved to be the perfect place to gather for our girl's getaway to take in the Chocolate Crawl weekend events that took place around the historic square in Georgetown TX. The cozy Inn offered a serene space for us to gather and relax and spend hours upon hours talking about all-things-life! Not only did we gather in the Inn's beautifully appointed common area, but we also took advantage of the glorious Texas weather and pulled up chairs around the table on the second floor patio that overlooks the courtyard and outdoor café. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance from the Inn--shopping, restaurants, historical buildings, natural spaces, walking trails, wineries, art galleries, and more. The Sweet Lemon Inn is a peaceful place, decorated tastefully in stunningly soft pastel colors and cottage-style decor. The pastry breakfast of raspberry scones, lemon curd, and sausage kolaches baked by the innkeeper in the bakery on the first floor of the Inn were divine. The mini chocolate cupcakes delivered as a little surprise treat were delicious. The small vase of roses that suddenly appeared on our patio table were delightful. What a weekend we had. Yes, our weekend was definitely sweetened by our stay at the Inn…and you can bet, it will be home base again for future girl's getaways.

Super Comfortable and Well Located property

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just truly easy and perfect. The location is great - the cute town square is very close, and if you don't go to Galaxy and get breakfast you are really missing out. Yum. The place is more like an apartment - we had two rooms and the third was empty, so it was like a private apartment. The check in, payment, return of security deposit- all seamless. We really appreciated the kind attention and that the place was so comfortable and had everything we could possibly need. Highly recommend - We will stay there again if we have the chance!

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Georgetown over the New Year's holiday for a family wedding and wanted to stay somewhere convenient with enough room for our family (2 adults and 3 teenage boys). The Sweet Lemon Inn was an incredible location to enjoy the beautiful Georgetown downtown that was fully decorated for the holiday season. We were close to the church and rehearsal dinner (Gumbos) and just a short drive to the reception at Gabriel Springs. While we were a mostly male group, the incredible décor of the Sweet Lemon Inn was not lost. Everything was incredibly comfortable and we felt like we were experiencing something a step above Joanna Gaines from HGTV's "Fixer Upper". Truly one of the best VRBO rentals we have ever experienced. The special touches were everywhere (including beautiful Christmas décor) but I would say one of the amazing additions was the blinds that switched to blackout shade. With the entire square lit up (and fireworks on New Year's Eve), it was nice to create a cozy sleeping haven for our tired crew after a couple of days of wedding celebration. LOVED the Sweet Lemon Inn and recommended it to everyone we talked to at the wedding.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 girls (ages4-73) enjoyed a lovely week-end at Sweet Lemon Inn. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The location to downtown and other walking destinations is great. Highly recommend them. The owners are gracious and excellent hosts.
