Information on Gibson Island: Gibson Island is a private island within one hour of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore offering an absolutely extraordinary setting. The Island comprises 1000 acres with seven miles of shoreline. Two thirds of the Island is undeveloped and is owned by the Gibson Island Corporation, the homeowners' association. The remaining third is residential home sites. Gibson Island is located on the western shore of Maryland, so there is no need to cross the Bay Bridge. On the Island is a 43-acre spring fed freshwater lake in which one may enjoy non-motorized watercraft activities such as paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and swimming. The Island offers enormous privacy and security--there is an entry gatehouse staffed 24+Hours and the Island is patrolled by the Gibson Island Police Force (GIPD). The Gibson Island Corporation Service Department offers yard maintenance and landscaping and other services for homeowners. There is a full-service yacht yard. From the Island, it is just a 20-minute drive to BWI Airport and the neighboring Amtrak train station. The Island houses a private country club (membership by invitation) offering yachting, fine dining year-round, tennis, an award-winning Charles Blair Macdonald designed 9-hole golf course, swimming, croquet, skeet shooting, and more. Private tours will be provided by appointment by the listing agent. Please contact her to make an appointment. (C) Gibson Island Corporation, all rights reserved.
