The Crimson Cottage was great. It was very clean and very well stocked. The outside patio was perfect for entertaining. The location was great and the owners were wonderful to deal with. I would definitely use this rental again!!!

Would Stay Here Every Time

  • 5 of 5

I just want to briefly say what an unbelievable time my friends and I had staying at the Crimson Cottage. The hospitality of its owners was top-notch, and I do not think you could find nicer people to rent from. Not only is their place a cozy, clean, comfortable shrine to all things Bama, but they also took genuine concern that my friends and I experience all the wonderful things to do in Tuscaloosa for a football weekend. As for the cottage, it has ample space to grill out, an amazing porch (with rocking swing), and it is only a stone's throw from the stadium and the Strip. Even though we were there for a guy's trip, the property would be great for families, too. Another huge benefit is that they have a caretaker on call 24/7. The guy is awesome and is an added bonus. As you can tell from this review, I cannot say enough good things about the Crimson Cottage, its owners, and Tuscaloosa.

A Place Where Memories Are Made!

  • 5 of 5

Graduation at the University of Alabama is a special time. We were looking for a place that could house our extended family and we needed at least six bedrooms, with two ground floor units. My husband and I had stayed at the adjoining house for a weekend this summer and one call to Jann and everything was set!

This place was beyond perfect for our needs. The common courtyard was a favorite meeting place for morning coffee and krispy kreme donuts as well as evening cocktails and wine. We had a large group, ranging in age from 3 years old to 75 years old and everyone was thrilled with the house.

Russell and Dooley helped make our graduation party a huge success. We had it catered and had about 30 people over and it was perfect. They helped with everything from getting tables out for us to use, putting up umbrellas for shade, putting music on the outdoor speakers and hanging up a flat screen tv for all to enjoy. We all loved talking to them and learning about the history of the property.

Jann is so easy to work with. She is quick to reply to emails and questions and genuinely a nice person.

Although our Alabama student is now an alum, we plan on returning in the future and we wouldn't stay anywhere else!

EXCELLENT! Most COMFORTABLE BEDS I have EVER slept in!!!!!!!!!!! Owners treat you like FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had the pleasure of renting the Crimson Cottage for 3 nights and 4 days last week during our tour of the University of Alabama. I just don't even know where to start with all the accolades I have for the owners (Jann & Donnie), the cottage, the beds, the beautiful decor, caretakers (Russell and Dooley), location, the porch and precious courtyard. The description of the property was extremely accurate. We stayed in the upstairs unit that has two bedrooms, 1 full bath with tub, galley kitchen, living room (with ample seating) and a cozy porch with swing and rocking chairs. THIS cottage is THE place to stay during your visit to Tuscaloosa! We slept like babies as the beds were EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE! We have rented many condos and I always woke up sore, not at the Crimson Cottage, we received THE BEST night sleep away from home, EVER! Upon our arrival the lovely owner Jann, met us at the cottage, introduced herself, the caretaker (Russell) and her brother Dooley that lives in the adjacent house. She gave us a quick tour and let us know if there was anything she could do to please let her know and if we needed anything Russell and Dooley were right next door as well. The cottage is within walking distance to the football & baseball stadiums, UA campus, University Blvd (with numerous restaurants, bars & shops). Tuscaloosa is a very driver and walker friendly town. People are so friendly we learned that it's nickname is "Pleasantville". During our stay my daughter made the decision to attend UA!! This is the first time I have ever been sad that we had to leave. But, we are already making plans to return and stay in the Crimson Cottage!

In Texas, we call people like Jann, Donnie, Russell and Dooley "Good People"! ROLL TIDE!

Awesome and Memorable!

I stayed here with my groomsmen in July 2013 for a few nights leading up to my wedding. The entire experience was fantastic. The rental process was smooth and easy and the property owners were incredible. Highly recommended.
