About Jann

This Cottage Duplex has been a labor of love to restore! Built in 1928, There is a lot of Tuscaloosa AND The University of Alabama history in each room.

From the original owners to the many students that have lived in it over the years, If walls could talk, we would be amazed I'm sure!

Jann purchased this cottage in 1978

Why Jann chose Tuscaloosa

It was in danger of being demolished AND ( no disrespect) torn up by the Students. We wanted to help preserve the integrity of this beautiful home & neighborhood and lovingly restore this adorable cottage and have folks who will appreciate and love our Little slice of BAMA Heaven too!!

What makes this cottage unique

We are VERY FAMILY ORIENTED!! Bring the Kids, the parents, the Grandparents! Grilling in the courtyard, Relaxing & Listening to the breeze rustle through the trees while lazily watching Bama Fans as the excitement of the season rolls out! Feel at home..... :-)

"A warm and cozy place"

  • 5 of 5

This is a very warm feeling place and equipped with everything you need to enjoy yourself. I liked that the property is linked by a gate and courtyard so all guests in your party are all in one area. The parking was sufficient and even a water hose to wash your car as well as music accommodations. The owner and caretaker were so helpful and kind to us. The place is clean and has a nice porch for small outside events. I recommend others to stay here, you will be very comfortable.

My place to call "Sweet Home Alabama"

  • 5 of 5

We (12) persons truly enjoyed our stay at Bama Crimsom Cottage. For some it was a return trip. The things they recalled are even more awesome. We are already talking up a plan to return. Kudu's to The Simpson's they are most excellent host. Both Donnie and Jann provide a true taste of what it means "Southern Hospitality" thank you both for your care. We surely have come to count you Alabama Family and Friends. (Oh yeah Russell and Dooley, great additions) see you all again.

We loved, loved, loved the Crimson Cottage! It was the perfect location. The courtyard was our fav!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your fun Cottage! The location couldn't be better. The courtyard was our favorite part. We had perfect weather our first night and were able to relax and have fun with our daughter's friends and parents! Russell was welcoming and turned some music on for us while we hung out in the courtyard! He went above and beyond and gave our daughters car a "jump" when it wouldn't start the next day! Thanks!!! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The bed is comfy. The ALABAMA decor is sooo impressive!! Can't wait to return for another stay!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you all had a great time! That is wonderful to hear. Yes, we tease Russell all of the time and say he is our "social coordinator". He loves people and loves to help them have fun! :-) We enjoyed having you and look forward to your next stay! Roll Tide!
