Bay Quarter Shores  is a planned community of 220 residences, located 5 miles east of Heathsville, Northumberland County, on Virginia's Northern Neck.  The location of Bay Quarter Shores at the mouth of the Potomac River and in full view of the Chesapeake Bay has made this one of the most pleasant family oriented communities in the Northern Neck of Virginia. 

By purchasing a home or buying a lot in Bay Quarter Shores, the owner automatically becomes a member of Bay Quarter Shores, Inc. Friends and relatives of members may become BQS Associate Members through sponsorship of a BQS home or lot owner. Members benefit from our swimming pool, club house, our private boat landing, children's playground, picnic area, fishing pier, tennis courts, golf driving range, and nature trails in our extensive wooded grounds and shoreline. Bay Quarter Shores is a Certified Golf Cart and Leash Law Community and maintains an active Neighborhood Watch Program.


The Bay Quarter Shores web site is designed to bring effective two-way communication between owners, residents, and the community administration, allowing members to keep in touch with their community wherever they may be. Many tasks such as filing forms and requests can be emailed or submitted online from this site. We have also provided current reference material such as bylaws, rules, and other governance issues. The Officers' Page allows you to direct your question to the board member directly involved with each issue. Hopefully this site will save you time, energy and effort, and make the business of community administration more effective.
