From the Zillow listing:


PRICE REDUCTION!! The riverside view alone is a Million Dollar view!!!! This Lodge was built to be a brothel for fur trappers and has a rich history, including famous St Louis mobsters. SO what is its best use? Well you have a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home and the 12 bedroom, 12.5 bathroom Lodge. The great room has beautiful original 2 story stone fireplace, great space for events, live music and dancing. The last use had the upstairs 6 bedroom suites for family and renovated 6 rooms on lower level for vacation rental. But could easily be 12 rental suites. From the lodge is an amazing 6 mile float to Steelville public access. Just over an hour to ST Louis and in the floating capital of MO. This is a perfect place to own as a family gathering place, a corporate retreat, a church or group activity or gathering place, a wedding venue, reunions, parties or any special event. There is not better place to watch the sunset than the new 20×100 deck. MUST HAVE APPOINTMENT TO SEE!!!!
