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..... :-)

Coming to Tuscaloosa? Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

For the past 14 years, ten guys have met up to watch a college came somewhere in the country. This year we came to Tuscaloosa and were fortunate enough to stay at the Bama Crimson Cottage. The housing is great. From the moment I contacted Jann about the rental almost a year out, we were taken care of through bedding questions, information about local water holes and keys to getting the most out of a weekend in Tuscaloosa. The complex is clean, very welcoming and Bama decorated all the way down to the As on the towels. We could not have been happier with our visit and encourage anyone coming to Tuscaloosa to stop searching and stay here.

"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.
