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.

Cute property perfect for a girls only weekend

  • 5 of 5

Sweet Lemon was everything we hoped it would be! Comfy beds, adorable color scheme, etc. made for a perfect night's stay. We did not realize ahead of time that there was only a kitchenette, but we made it work and it helps that there is a delicious food option right downstairs for breakfast and lunch. Georgetown gave us options for entertainment (we went to yoga and the blue hole to swim) and we had a great, though short, stay!

Clean and comfortable. Location is perfect - close to many shops and restaurants. Kitchenette is limited without a cooktop or stove. Overall a great place to stay.

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My mother, sister and close friend came to Georgetown this past weekend for a "Girls Getaway". The Sweet Lemon Inn was the perfect venue. Quaint, cozy, convenient and comfortable. The kitchen downstairs served us delicious food from their Arnie iced drinks to their Avocado BLTs - scrumptious! The patio was surprisingly pleasant (it was 100 degrees plus) with a cool breeze and shade from a huge pecan tree. We enjoyed our coffees and pastries outside both mornings! There was music playing on Friday at 4:30 right below us. Like our own private concert! We all are looking at our calendars to plan our next getaway to Georgetown - staying at The Sweet Lemon Inn!!!!

Thanks for a great time staff!

Beautiful place, great location in Georgetown, a few minor flaws...

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location - central to the Georgetown area located on top of a small coffee shop/cafe. Nice, quaint decor. Comfortable interior. 2 small issues. 1- The AC unit in the master bedroom makes a repetitive loud buzzing noise at set intervals that is very audible and disrupted my sleep all the nights I was there. I was unable to trouble shoot this issue. This occurs with the unit in the room both ON or OFF. Second - since you're above a cafe, there is outside noise at fairly early hours in the morning. If you're an early riser - this is a non issue, but if you want to sleep in on vacation past 9-10 am...there may be voices disturbing you outside from both employees and guests.
