About Stacey and Shellie Seering

My wife and I have lived in the Duluth area for 16 years and love all it has to offer, everything from a mountainous hike to a fabulous meal and classic play downtown. Our home is on the same property as the guest house and we are around to help with any questions or needs during your stay.

Stacey and Shellie Seering purchased this house in 2012

Why Stacey and Shellie Seering chose St. Louis County

This is truly an enchanted piece of property which causes instant relaxation upon your arrival. Our previous guests have described Singing Waters as "magical." We have, and you will fall in love with Singing Waters!

What makes this house unique

The property is located on the best section of the Sucker River that has its own private swimming hole and waterfalls. The constant sound of the river is calming and peaceful. A very short hike (300 feet) downstream brings you to over 150 acres of state land and hiking.

Above and beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

For our annual birthday “up-North” getaway we were attracted to Singing Waters from the photos, being kid-friendly, and its location. The guest house lived up to the photos! When we arrived there were cookies and birthday balloons waiting for us; in addition to the place being clean, inviting, and well-stocked.

Seriously, it’s the best place we’ve ever stayed. On the 19 acres are several other impressive structures, hiking trails, a pond, river swimming access with waterfalls, and the friendliest couple this side of Lake Superior.

Our favorite highlights: the cabana, the Lincoln Log library, indoor hopscotch, comfy beds, games (board and handheld electronic for indoor, kerplunk and cornhole outdoor), a rushing waterfall on the river, nice shower, screened porch, scavenger hunts along the hiking trails, and of course the vibrant, inspiring décor.

We hope to come back next year!

Great property, accomodating owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Singing Waters. What a peaceful, secluded guest house! The owners were very accommodating and are available for anything you need (including last minute restaurant recommendations, much appreciated.) The guest house has everything you need, including firewood ready for campfires. My child also enjoyed the scavenger hunt...very nice. Definitely recommended!

Best cabin we ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

This was the best cabin we ever stayed. That is is a separate story that I have stayed only one other cabin and this was my second ever. I would recommend this place, it is secluded, has a waterfall, ample space for games, has AC as well as windows that open and are screened so no mosquitoes will get in too. My daughter enjoyed little Lincoln library and treasure hunt. We interacted with Stacy, Shellie and their dog, all were good. We had a pleasant experience.

Such beauty

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying. We loved it. It was a bit too hot for us to explore the grounds like we did the last time but that did not deter us from having a beautiful time.

Loved our stay at Singing Waters!!

  • 5 of 5

Singing Waters is such an amazing place for adults and children! Im having trouble even finding the words to describe it. There's just so many things to see and do and the guest house has such a warm and cozy feeling to it. We loved being able to explore the 19 acres, including a waterfall, the Lincoln library, the hideout, the pond, the cabana, even the signs along the trails and many other things to see along the way. When weather was cold we played games inside that they've provided. Everything we needed was there! I could go on and on about how amazing Singing Waters is. Our children ages 6, 2 and 11 months all had so much fun. Owners are also very friendly and made us and our children feel welcome. We definetly will be back!! Thank you Stacey and Shellie for sharing your guest house with us!

Singing Water Guest House provides you the peace and quiet of a relaxing getaway while being close enough to enjoy all that Duluth and the Northshore has to offer. In Duluth you'll find unique shops, ship watching on Lake Superior, and enjoy excellent dining with many options. Why not see a show at the DECC, visit one of the many breweries Duluth is becoming known for, take in a concert at Bayfront Park, or tour the Congdon Mansion? Brighton Beach is a fabulous spot for sea glass and agate hunting along with a paved walk/bike path all the way to Canal Park . Are you brave enough to dip your toes in the frigid waters of the World's Largest Fresh Water Lake? A drive up Scenic Highway 61 along Lake Superior is an adventure not to miss! On your way up the gorgeous shore visit tourist sights such as Goosberry Falls (26 miles), Betty's Pies (15 miles), Lutsen Ski Mountain and Hiking (76 miles), Splitrock Lighthouse (33 miles), or find your own 'special spot'.
