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.

The Great Escape!
I had the time of my life in an ideal setting for a time in my life for reflections
Sparkling waters all around
Lovely and comfy home
Will def return next year!
This was our favorite cabin we ever rented in Minnesota. It was beautiful, private and so fun being on an island. The sauna was so lovely. Boating and fishing was great! My husband and myself and our little boy Jack hope to be back someday! The owners kept a great wood supply for the sauna and our campfires. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place!

Peaceful Island Getaway
This was my family's 4th year visiting this cabin. We love it! It's rustic, but has everything you need to be comfortable. The lake is beautiful. I hope we can visit again next summer.
It's great to have the repeat guests. They have always been quality visitors.
Michael and family will always be welcome.
What a stellar spot
Amazing location, owners, and boat rental! Town of Ely is beautiful and friendly too. We had a wonderful family trip, comfortable and gorgeous views. Thank you!
Lake Island Cabin
Loved every minute of it. This place was so great for our family. The owners are so kind and attentive to you needs by being available for questions. Easy and quick drive to Ely to get the essentials or shop the downtown area. Fishing was fun on the lake. Just a great relaxing place to get away from it all. Sauna was a huge bonus and the lake was great for swimming! Would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for having us!
We had a wonderful vacation at the cabin. The lake is beautiful and the cabin was perfect for our family. We rented a boat from the owner’s contact and the process was very smooth. We are hoping to go back again next year!
We are always happy to hear our guests had a great vacation. It shows us we have done our part in making it happen. They were the perfect example of a family enjoying an "ESCAPE". Our "Escape".
thank you; Dave & Diane
