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.

Great place to stay
This will be our 2nd time staying here. Once in July and now in October. We Loved it both times. The Sauna and the wood Stove made the stay even better. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars. We Will be back and I recommend staying here. Dave is so easy to deal with and the cabin is very clean. Thanks again Dave
Unique Relaxing Getaway
For our recent northwoods excursion my husband wanted fishing and I wanted something unique -- we both got exactly what we wanted! We were very comfortable and our dog enjoyed her time as well. Water was low so the rocks in the lake were treacherous, but Shagawa was not far away and offered a safer alternative.
Hosts were extremely kind and charming. Probably the most helpful VRBO hosts we've ever had!
It's quite a feat for a "roughing it" sort of location like this to feel relaxing and kind of "easy," but it surely did. Don't miss the sunset on the point, and the sauna experience made for an entire beauty treatment morning that I definitely enjoyed!
The most amazing cabin!
My husband, I and our corgi had the most wonderful time at this cabin. The location of it is just so unique! The little outlook point at the end of the island can not be more magical. The cabin has everything you need. We also loved the sauna and used it a couple times. Our hosts were very helpful and very kind. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I hope I will be back myself!
What a great experience!
My family and I enjoyed the seclusion of this cabin on an island. The Finnish sauna was fantastic and dips in the clean lake were super refreshing. Lots of great firewood for the fire pit. A very short drive to Ely. Dave and Diane were helpful and friendly.
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!
Located in Ely, you will also find the International Wolf Center and Bear Center.
