About Chris DeBusk

I grew up on the weekends and summers at SML and am just totally in love with the lake. Getaway time is a special thing and we strive to do everything possible to make your experience awesome.

Chris DeBusk purchased this condo in 2017

Why Chris DeBusk chose Moneta

We purchased this condo turnkey, however I redecorated it with a modern feel by replacing the furniture and artwork. I additionally added quite a bit to the kitchen for guests such as a wine fridge and Keurig. Think new and modern! Well, the view speaks for itself and the porch is outfitted for hanging out or dining. Lastly, the technology has been completely replaced from the TVs to the thermostat. Netflix streaming is available on both large flat panel TVs. The latest and greatest tech!

Fabulous stay!!

The condo is extremely clean, comfortable, updated, and has everything you would possibly need! It also has an awesome view of the lake and mountains! Chris was very helpful and kept in touch with us before and during our stay. He provided all information ahead of time and replied very quickly to any emails or questions. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful views and excellent accommodations

My wife and I enjoyed everything about this place from the decorations to the view from the patio. It was so peaceful and quiet and the Smith Mountain Lake area is beautiful. The owners are great to work with and I would recommend to anyone.

Small but beautifully appointed.

  • 5 of 5

I planned a surprise birthday weekend for my husband. I wanted somewhere within a 2 hour drive,my husband loves vacationing near water so Smith Mountain Lake came to mind. Ive never used VRBO before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The property owner Christopher DeBusk was professional and excellent to work with and very responsive. He allowed us to arrive early and leave late without hesitation. The condo was exactly as it appeared on the site. It was clean updated and beautifully decorated. It is small but cozy with a wonderful view of the lake. It was perfect for my husband and myself. Thanks Christopher it was a great weekend. I would definitely recommend staying in this condo.

Wonderful weekend at a beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Bernard's Landing several times. This was the first trip we stayed at this condo. The place was very clean and had a beautiful interior. It has modern applicances and comfortable furnishings which created a warm, relaxing atmosphere. A large, spacious balcony gives you a perfect view of the lake and mountains. Great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning as the sun rises, as well as a nice glass of wine in the late afternoon to watch a beautiful sunset.

Chris, the owner, checked on us periodically to ensure everything was running smoothly. He was quick to respond to any questions I had from my initial booking until the end of our trip. My wife and I had another outstanding time on this trip. We look forward to returning to this condo in the near future. Class A rental with a Class A owner. Cannot beat that combination. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Definitely Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd Anniversary stay at a rental property at Smith Mountain Lake, and I would have to say, hands down it was the best! The condo is well appointed, inside and out and is even more beautiful in person! I can't say enough about the view! The owner was quick to respond to our last minute booking and the office contact at Bernard's Landing was easy to work with as well, as we had brought our boat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely plan to come back!
