Heaven Scent Bed & Breakfast offers Virginia Green Lodging right on Route 33, the road to Deltaville, VA and Sting Ray Point. As this was the farmhouse, it is set some 300 yards back from the highway, among magnolia and pecan trees, where the highway is not heard. Tended as wildlife habitat, with a butterfly garden, fountain, many birdbaths and feeders, it also has herb gardens, a rose garden, lilacs and peonies so that delicious scents are wafted with each breeze.

Come to relax, breathe the wonderful fresh air, chill and be pampered. I love spoiling guests and seeing them enjoy the property, whether bird-watching, relaxing on the large screened porch, or checking out the original watercolors and other paintings that fill the house. Guests who want to be active can learn to sail, go out on a fishing charter, kayak on the creeks or the Piankatank River or the Rappahannock River, play golf, or use the town's free tennis courts. You can swim in the rivers as well, with small beaches just 3 miles from the house, or get a day pass for the Urbanna pool, 14 miles up the road. Here at Heaven Scent, practice your golf drives out in the fields, play badminton or wiffle ball.

Hospitality is foremost. You can be sure of a warm welcome and kind attention. You'll have as much privacy as you like, but will also be offered refreshments and snacks at any hour. Come and go as you please, there is no curfew here! Breakfast hours are flexible so that you can enjoy a wonderful homecooked meal to start your day, whatever your plans. I look forward to hosting your stay in Deltaville, VA.

Family-Friendly, Pet-Friendly

This is not an empty-nester's house, but rather a house acquired specifically to create a B&B. The house was furnished with adults in mind, and there are no bits of children's furniture in the attic to pull out. But these days parents seem to travel with everything a child needs, foldable cribs or playpens included. Call with any questions about how a room might suit your family situation, and I'll be glad to work with you to make everyone safe and comfortable. As long as children understand that there may be other guests to consider, a bed and breakfast stay can be a wonderful experience. They'll be treated as honored guests, the same as their parents, and I'll try to make everyone feel pampered. I trust parents know their children, and whether it's a good time for them to be fairly quiet and calm B&B guests. So far, children have been delightful guests and enjoyed their stays. I regret that my pets are gone, because children so enjoyed them. But perhaps you can bring yours along!

Innkeeper Pat Patterson

Raynell 'Nauti Nell' and Pat Patterson, Innkeeper of Heaven Scent, in Cancun, Feb 2016

A native "Saint Louis woman", I came to Chick Cove Manor in January 2003 after 24 years in Manhattan. It took till June 2004 to get the house in shape to open, with new bathrooms, and new drywall and windows upstairs being some of the changes. Heaven Scent lets me indulge my love of cooking for guests, and provides more than ample gardening challenges for anyone. I enjoy meeting guests and hearing their stories, and love to pamper all who come. My own passions (besides cooking) are classical music, wine, international travel, language study, history, genealogy, and all fine arts. Beyond that, I'm rather a computer nerd and enjoy programming. Nocturnal creature with a disturbed inner clock, little clue of night or day, so do not hesitate to call or arrive late at night.

Sad to say, all my co-hosts are gone. Being alone, I now choose to close for the winter and head to Cancun. Dates are flexible until mid-October when I'll lock in my own flights and lodging, so if you are thinking of booking in November or December, please reserve before then. I'm happy to stay if I have firm bookings.
