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..... :-)

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!

This place was perfect for our needs! We stayed in apt #4. Close to school and comfortable. Jann is friendly and helpful and available. Russell gives this place a touch of country charm! He is friendly and welcoming. We hope to stay here again.

The apartment was very comfortable and convenient. Loved the character, the balcony and the patio.

  • 5 of 5

The charming apartment maintains the character of the vintage home, which we loved. The Bama theme throughout is a mixture of memorabilia from 60s through today. We had 12 total family members make the trip and others to come visit - the apartment accommodated all. It was so much better than several hotel rooms. We had ages 7 to 70 with us and all enjoyed. The shared patio was a great place for gathering all day and late into the evening. Mixed crowd of fans and everyone mingled and enjoyed. Parking was great, even on the big Bama- Texas A&M game day . Easy walking to the Strip, BD stadium and the Quad. Jann welcomed us like family. Russell, our on site -around the clock host, was great. Made everyone feel at home and our grandchildren loved him. Could not have asked for a better big game weekend. We hope we can always stay at Jann's place when we visit T-Town. Roll Tide!

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

had a big group of friends coming through town for a wedding during an away game week, and the Crimson Cottage was absolutely perfect! Plenty of space inside and out for hanging out, and really close to all the best stuff. Those who had never before visited the great state of Alabama got a great T-town experience, not to mention a look at the best collection of Bama memorabilia outside of the Bryant museum. . . Jann was a great host, super friendly and easy to arrange everything with, hope to be back for a football weekend soon. Roll Tide!

Apartment #1 at the blue house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for parent's weekend and were absolutely in AWE of what Donnie and Jann Simpson have done to this old, victorian home! It was decorated "Bama" to the nines, and extremely tastefully done from top to bottom! The apartment is quite large and very comfortable. It has 2 brand new, comfortable queen sofa beds(we didnt use them as beds) . The kitchen is fully stocked,and the outside porches and grill areas are just outstanding! We cant say enough about how fun it was to stay there and be a part of our first Bama parent's experience. The location is fantastic! We loved sitting on the porch n the rockers and watching everyone head to the stadium on game day. I cannot say enough about the BAMA decor, the coziness, the cleanliness, and the fantastic hospitality of Donnie and Jann. Absolutely amazing and there is NO WHERE else in T-town that we want to stay!
