Pete Jakstas, owner of the Mineola Lounge and Marina on the shores of Fox Lake, said he decided to list the 17-acre property on eBay Monday after trying unsuccessfully to sell the property during the past few years, The (Arlington Heights, Ill.) Daily Herald reported Thursday.
"I figured by putting it on eBay, it would draw some bids from around the country," Jakstas said. "Hopefully, this will help sell the property on a national market to the right bidder."
The seller said he is ready to retire after more than 50 years of maintaining the property, which served as a hangout for gangsters including Capone in the early 1920s.
