Great Opportunity to Create Added Value

A new owner can benefit from adding few amenities to realize a higher value and upside such as: a swimming pool and patio near the river west of the restaurant building, a small water park features for kids, in and out rack storage service for runabouts, outside patio bar at the waterfront next to the restaurant building, additional floating villas for purchase. The following activities can be added as well: Arranging for a tour bus stop at the marina with Starved Rock Lodge with a layover promotion and providing a river tour boat at the marina with possible food & bar service.
