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 is now open downstairs serving breakfast and lunch from 7am - 2:30pm Tuesday through Saturday.

Downtown Delight

  • 5 of 5

The lemon tree inn was immaculate and the staff super friendly. Not even an ounce of concerns! Beds were comfortable and cooling systems super pleasant. The cafe downstairs even left us some sweet rolls later in the evening.

Thanks

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The owner thought of everything possible to make our visit comfortable. Perfect for weddings as the chapel was virtually at our doorstep and the bride and wedding party had plenty of space to dress. The restaurant downstairs was a delight! I would highly recommend this place!
