About Tim and Lorinda Troppmann

Life long Alaskan Native. Born and raised in the interior of Alaska. Met my husband in Crested Butte Colorado. We both love the outdoors and living life to the fullest.

Tim and Lorinda Troppmann purchased this house in 2014

Why Tim and Lorinda Troppmann chose Alaska

Lived in this neighborhood for more than two decades. Love the quietness of the area and also the proximity to all that Fairbanks has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The house is located in a neighborhood that has one entrance in...and one entrance out. There is no heavy traffic, and many of the people that live in this neighborhood take leisurely strolls around the encircling streets.

Wonderful house with all amenities, so much better than any hotel suite in Fairbanks.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 10 days here, when transitioning from Kodiak to Fairbanks. Looked at all hotel suites in Fairbanks before renting this home. This home has so much more than any hotel suite in Fairbanks, for the same price or cheaper. Both kids had their own space, which was great for 10 days.

Comfortable & Functional with Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Lorinda's vacation rental home is conveniently located less than 10 minutes away from the Fairbanks International Airport, and a few minutes drive to the heart of the city and stores to purchase necessities that anyone may need. The home's lay out is very functional, and Lorinda provided all the basic necessities in the home that we did not have to have emergency errands to pick up things like paper towel, garbage bags, laundry detergent, tissues, dishwashing detergent, etc. We slept in comfortable beds and beddings. During our stay, she was easily accessible via text messaging, and was very responsive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely choose to come back and stay in her home again if our travels lead us back to Fairbanks, AK. Our sincerest thanks to Lorinda and her family for welcoming us into their home.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house in Fairbanks while we were visiting Alaska. The house was very beautiful and clean. The house was very well prepared in advance for our stay. Lorinda was in contact with us prior to our arrival and made sure the whole experience was very smooth. Highly recommended!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean and updated home in a great location for accessing area sightseeing and the airport. Quiet, well-maintained and very nicely decorated. Well equipped kitchen. Roomy single bathroom was perfectly adequate for the 3 of us. Owner was prompt and responsive to all arrangements and questions. Even nicer than the pictures posted of the property. Don't miss the sternwheeler river cruise - it is well worthwhile and extremely well run. Crepery in historic downtown area wonderful for lunch. Really enjoyed Lavelle's Restaurand and the food and setting at the Wild Alaskan Grill were wonderful. Eat early at the Wild Alaskan Grill as service declines considerably when the restaurant gets busy. Trip to Chena Hot Springs and the Ice Museum also fun. Downtown historic Fairbanks is charming.

Comfortable, clean home!

  • 5 of 5

Lorinda really went above and beyond to help us have a wonderful stay! We arrived late at night and were personally welcomed to a beautiful and very clean home. We slept well in the comfortable beds and had everything we needed. The location is quiet and convenient. Thank you for all you did for us, Lorinda! We heartily recommend this gem!
