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 Minnesota

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.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely perfect, great views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on the island. The lake was peaceful, and there are a lot of hiking trails and other things to do and see in the area! It was the perfect retreat for the two of us and our dog. The lake was great for swimming, and stunning views from the island!

Secluded, quiet get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property with great owners! It has everything you might need for a long stay and is well maintained. The owners are very thoughtful and accommodating. I spent my time in the water, in the sauna, kayaking, reading and watching sunsets from the open space at the end of the island. I really enjoyed my trip and hope to visit again! Thank you for allowing me to visit!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time there! The only downside was the outhouse. It was very peaceful and we had lots of fun!

If it's windy, be sure to have a boat that can deal with the wind as I can see how the paddleboat could be hard to deal with in the wind.
