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..... :-)

Beautiful cottage and close to stadium.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter has freshman orientation in July 2016 and the place was wonderful, clean and had everything we needed. The owner was very accommodating since we arrived late on the check in date. It is located close to campus in a quiet neighborhood. Definitely looking forward to staying there again to visit my daughter.

Thank you for everything!!!!!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Jann could not have been more wonderful from answering all my questions to making sure we were all comfortable. The rooms were spacious, clean, well stocked with all you need, and very fun with the Alabama decor. The outside area was just as great. We stayed with numerous families for a fastpitch softball tournament and came from Florida. The cottage was very convenient to the fields as well grocery stores and restaurants. If we ever make it back to Tuscaloosa we will definitely stay at the Crimson cottage again. Thank you Jann.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This rental was absolutely beautiful. Everything you could possibly need was provided in the rental. The beds were very comfortable, the decor was gorgeous and Alabama themed throughout. It was immaculate inside and outside. I was in Alabama to visit a relative and he ended up being in the hospital in Birmingham when I arrived. The commute to the hospital was less than an hour and very easy to get to from this house. It was well worth the drive to come home to such a comfortable place after being at the hospital all day.

I went to Rama Jama's for breakfast and the food and the service were great. I also visited the Paul Bear Bryant museum and the Jemison mansion and would recommend both. I wish I had known about VRBO a long time ago. It was so much better than renting a hotel room. The owner Jann was so friendly and thoughtful. Thank you Jann!

Awesome stay at the Crimson Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Jann was a great host! The cottage is conveniently located, comfortable, and was perfect for our ladies reunion. We especially enjoyed the patio areas and porches for chilling out and visiting with friends.
