Kristi Bubrig is a magic maker. She always finds a way to spin straw into gold.

The Bubrig’s passion is giving the gift of a magical vacation to people from all over the world.

So when you book a vacation with Kristi and Byron, you’re not just on vacation; you’re inside the pages of a story.

If you stayed forever, Kristi would soon have you working like a house-elf: cleaning, organizing, painting, or sending you on a mission to find new treasures for the vacation rentals until someone gave you a sock or other item of clothing.
Trust us; it’s better to book a vacation whenever you need some magic in your life.

Although we are animal lovers and do have some gentle fur babies for you to interact with during your stay (if you wish), we do not allow pets on the property. Please leave your fur baby with loved ones whilst visiting Fablerealm.
We do welcome certified service animals working with their owners to help in their day-to-day lives. If you will have a service animal, please let us know beforehand, so we can discuss any adjustments before arrival.

Kristi has a knack for finding treasure! We have favorite shops that sell all sorts of magical items and are happy to point you in the direction of a more magical life.
