A clip from an archived post on the Whit Harvey Group blog, describing life on Gibson Island:

The limits of Gibson Island Harbor consist of a line north across the Magothy Narrows, beginning at the most northerly part of Holland Point. The enclosed waters including Red House Cove, constitute Gibson Island Harbor.



The Harbor Master’s office is manned year-round and the Gibson Island Yacht Squadron operates four facilities:

  • Boathouse and finger piers at the east end of the Harbor
  • Mooring field in Gibson Island Harbor
  • Lighthouse Dock slips at the west end of the Harbor
  • Red House Cove slips in Red House Cove
  • Light House Dock Hoists – 2 tonsIMG_3941

Moorings and slips are available on a seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily basis. There is a yacht repair facility with a travel lift, operating as Gibson Island Yacht Yard.

From canoeing, paddle boarding, and kayaking on one of the Island’s two freshwater ponds, to the Gibson Island Junior Sailing Fleet founded in 1924, there is something here for anyone who wants to spend time on the water.

Enchanting Cottage on Private Island

Everyone knows Gibson Island for its waterfront. It has 7 miles of shoreline, which includes frontage on the Chesapeake Bay and Magothy River. The sheltered harbor is filled with boats, and the Yacht Club hosts the Junior Fleet and sailboat racing. Admittedly, the beaches are lovely, the lakes are peaceful, and there is nothing quite like a day on the water. But there is another side of the island – the inside. Let’s go there.

About two-thirds of Gibson Island is set aside for recreation, forestry and wildlife conservation. The interior of the island is filled with sun-dappled woods, meadows and rolling hills. Paved roads feel more like meandering pathways, and there is a quiet solitude that is most apparent at 624 Cotterill Road.


Nestled at the end of a tree-lined drive is an extraordinary custom-built cottage just up the hill from the clubhouse – close to all that Gibson Island has to offer, yet very private and off the beaten path. From the cobblestone driveway surrounded by landscaped gardens, to the cedar siding and French board and batten shutters, this Cape Cod was designed to enchant from the start.

Soaring ceilings, lofted spaces, skylights, French doors, and walls of windows fill the house with light. The river recovery heart of pine floors, carved antique wood mantel, window seats, dry bar and other custom details will fill you with delight. You can be master of all you survey from the second story loft. Click to view more.

When Does a Moisture Problem Become a Mold Problem?

Mold refers to multiple types of fungi that grow in filaments and reproduce by forming spores. It is common in the natural environment and is constantly introduced to indoor living spaces by outside air, on people, and through food.

How do molds get in the indoor environment and how do they grow?

Mold spores may enter your house from the outside through open doorways, windows, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems with outdoor air intakes. Spores in the air outside also attach themselves to people and animals, making clothing, shoes, bags, and pets convenient vehicles for carrying mold indoors.

When mold spores drop on places where there is excessive moisture, such as where leakage may have occurred in roofs, pipes, walls, plant pots, or where there has been flooding, they will grow. Many building materials provide suitable nutrients that encourage mold to grow. Wet cellulose materials, including paper and paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and wood products, are particularly conducive for the growth of some molds. Other materials such as dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation materials, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery, commonly support mold growth.

The most common types of mold that are found indoors include: Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria, and Aspergillus. Stachybotrys chartarum (also known as Stachybotrys atra and sometimes referred to as “black mold”) is a greenish-black mold that can also be found indoors.*

Individuals respond to mold exposure in a variety of ways. There is a large variation in individual susceptibility to the same exposure levels and the possibility of a person becoming sensitized to specific specie of mold growing in a certain location.
