Does anyone know anything about the abandoned lodge and mine just south of EE hwy off of 65? It was a small mineral mine that started to build a extreamly fancey lodge next door with 2 smaller cabins on the property. One of the owners embezzled a bunch of money and then they all went to jail and the bank closed down the mine and the lodge before it was ever opened. A friend of mine camped out there a few years ago and said it was in very good condition. No one had vandalized it at the time. We are going to go check it out next weekend.

First I've heard of it. Is it like a horizontal mine, or a pit-type mine?

I just heard of it last night when I was showing a friend of mine the web site. He was trying to tell me the story. Apperently this husband and wife found some kind of mineral in the area and were mining it on a low scale. They took a bunch o the money they had earned and built a very fancy grand lodge and 2 smaller cabins on the property. He told me that there was a sign in front of the lodge that told the story of the mine and what not.
Inside one of the offices in the lodge was some newspaper clipping were the wife was embezeling some money and they both got arrested and so on. He said it looked like they had not finished building it but were almost done. The place is supposed to be in very good condition. We are going to go check it out one night next week.

Anybody got a google maps location of the lodge? Because I live in Ozark, have spent some time in that vicinity, and never either heard of it, nor ever seen it.

it is actually the same place referred to in this post from several years back http://www.undergroundozarks.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1412

It is not torn down as was suggested in that previous post. the original property was divided into smaller ~5 acre plots and the lodge stands on a ~10 acre plot. Many of the plots are currently for sale.... the current owner of the lodge is a Lawyer and has the property watched by the developer who lives nearby. send me a pm for specific ?'s /details
