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 Georgetown

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.

Lovely Addition to a Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Sweet Lemon Inn was an absolutely perfect spot for my wedding party and I to stay the night before my wedding! We were even able to use it as a "getting ready" space with our makeup artist and hair stylists. I could not have been more pleased with how attentive the Sweet Lemon staff was. Every single one of my bridesmaids mentioned how sweet everyone was to them as they went down to order breakfast on the big day. Thank you for being part of our perfect wedding weekend!!

Absolutely beautiful, restful, and fun place!

  • 5 of 5

I recently booked the Sweet Lemon Inn in for the Friday/Saturday of my wedding weekend and cannot recommend this place more! The location was right in the middle of all things fun and beautiful about Georgetown (great shops, food trucks, Blue Hole Park, etc.) but the hospitality of the folks at Sweet Lemon was absolutely the best part. Plenty of fresh towels, sheets, and mirrors galore- the Inn was the sweetest place to get ready with my bridesmaids the day of my wedding and the lunch we ordered from the Sweet Lemon Kitchen downstairs was TO DIE FOR. Days later, I am still thinking about the avocado BLTs and the charcuterie plate :). Hoping to book again sometime soon for another post-wedding getaway. It is absolutely as beautiful and restful as the photos appear!
