About David and Diane Kromer
Have lived in Ely most of our lives and always wanted to have a cabin on one of the area lakes.
David and Diane Kromer purchased this Cabin in 1998
Why David and Diane Kromer chose Babbitt
Looked at many other places; but found this cabin and property had the most to offer; in convenience, privacy and peace of mind. Thus the name: "The Escape" This property had it all. Beautiful sunsets, a swimming beach and gorgeous views of the natural beauty of northern Minnesota.
What makes this Cabin unique
The view from the deck of the cabin or down at the lakeshore is amazing. I love to sit on the deck with a book, listening to the waves, and enjoying the sun and the breeze that comes off the lake. Steam up in the traditional Finnish sauna and then jump in the lake to cool down. It is truly an amazing experience. Fish for walleye, northern, bass, blue gill or crappies. Enjoy the tranquil setting and catch amazing sunsets from the point on the island. Use the paddle boat to check out the beaver house across the bay. You may even spot a turtle sunning itself on a log or rock. Bald eagle and loon sightings are common. Enjoy a nightly campfire under an amazing star filled sky and listen to the loons calling out to each other. Enjoy the peace and tranquility this island cabin has to offer.

A True Escape
Really cool set up, cabin has that up north feel and the Finnish sauna is awesome. Dave does a great job keeping everything clean and functional. The only downside for us was the fishing was horrible. But relaxing around the campfire we forgot all about it, also has the best outhouse view ever......Thanks Dave!
lovely spot and a lovely stay!
Our son and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Escape cabin. Beautiful surroundings, lots of wildlife, and the peace of nature! Our hosts were lovely and helpful. We will definitely return!
Rustic yet with facilities. Sauna was great!
Very private! We enjoyed the little path around the property, the beach and pedal boat and the special spot to watch the sunset. Altogether, a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature!
Great place to stay
We had a great time staying here. Cabin is very nice with everything provided besides food and beer. We also rented a boat from echo shore resorts they were easy to deal with. Dave was very helpful and was just a phone call away. Would recommend staying here. Was nice being on a island too(not to far from the landing thou) thanks Dave.
Charming cabin on an island !!
We went on a fishing trip up north and were lucky to get this cabin on an island. The views from the upper dock and lower docks are amazing as you watch the sunset. Dave has done an exceptional job on the cabin. The lake is beautiful and big ( but not too big) to fish. The Finnish Sauna was very relaxing. Beautiful cabin and a perfect spot for a weekend getaway !!
Dave and his wife were very warm. Looking forward to renting in again soon.
It was perfect!
It was exactly what my family and I were hoping for. My two boys ages 8 & 5 had a great time. My wife and I found it to be very peaceful and relaxing. We've decided that we need to come back again for another visit sometime. We also thought the town of Ely was great, everything we needed, 10 minutes away.
Located in Ely, you will also find the International Wolf Center and Bear Center.
