Illinois hotel favored by Capone for sale on eBay
Historic Illinois hotel favored by mobster Capone goes up for sale on eBay; $2M starting bid
By The Associated Press

FOX LAKE, Ill. (AP) ' A historic hotel in northern Illinois that once served as mobster Al Capone's weekend retreat is up for sale on eBay.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/KwELeJ ) 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, a marina and his former home. He says he's been trying to sell the Mineola for a couple of years and decided to try eBay so he could 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.
