About Susan Ward

I design educational programs, and am also a freelance photographer. However, I grew up in the hospitality business (my parents owned a chain of restaurants), and I have long enjoyed hosting visitors and making them feel at home. I love to travel and I being outdoors, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and SCUBA diving. I also love to cook.

Why Susan Ward chose Smoky Mountains

Candlefire Cabin is a charming log home set in the woods in a quiet neighborhood. The guest apartment occupies the ground floor of the home, and has a private entrance. It's a great place to come relax after spending the day exploring the surrounding areas.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the views of the lake through the trees from the front of the property, and taking walks through the quiet streets that wander down to the lake. There is so much to do around this area, and we love the scenery and ambience of Haywood Country.
