Mobster Al Capone's weekend retreat in Fox Lake for sale on eBay

CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

A historic hotel in Fox Lake that once served as mobster Al Capone's weekend retreat is up for sale on eBay.

The Arlington Heights Daily Herald reports that the owners of the Mineola Lounge and Marina listed the property in Fox Lake on eBay on Monday with a starting bid of $2 million.

Owner Pete Jakstas says the property includes the hotel, 17 acres of lake-front land, the marina and his former home. He says he's been trying to sell the Mineola for a couple of years and he decided to try eBay so he'd reach a national market.

The president of the Grant Township Historical Society says the Mineola has fallen into disrepair in recent years but has the potential to be beautiful.
