Situated on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Magothy River, Gibson Island is an enchanting, two by three mile private island located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The island is accessed by a private, man-made causeway. The topography varies and includes low-lying, tidal wetlands, a 44-acre fresh water pond, and rolling hills. Home sites account for about one third of the land, the remaining two thirds of land is devoted to open space, natural woods, a bird sanctuary and recreation. The Gibson Island harbor is a broad cove of the Magothy River sheltered from all sides, offering safe anchorage to both power and sail boats. A place of natural beauty and with no Bay Bridge to cross, Gibson Island is less than an hour from Baltimore, Washington and Annapolis, and BWI Airport and the train station, yet feels like it is worlds away.
