I stayed in the upper apartment with two other moms for 10 days while our daughters participated in sorority recruitment and move-in. The apartment was so comfortable and charming, location was so close to campus, and the owners and manager were fabulous! Thank you, and I am looking forward to my next visit!

Owner response: So glad you had a great stay! Looking forward to seeing you again :-)
Came back to Tuscaloosa with the family for a high school reunion and we stayed in the upstairs apartment - it was wonderful!! This was so much better to stay at than any hotel, felt like our home away from home! Place is furnished with everything you could want, so neat and comfortable that my 13 year old daughter said "I want to live in an apartment like this when I go to college! " We loved the upstairs porch, it was so nice and comfortable to sit out on the swing or chairs, felt cool even on a hot day. Location is very convenient to the campus and everything else. Jann was great to work with and we will definitely be contacting them to stay here again the next time we come home to Tuscaloosa!!

Owner response: Enjoyed seeing you and getting to know your beautiful family! Come again anytime you are in town!
We rented both the upstairs and downstairs apartments of the Crimson Cottage for four nights while our girls were at cheer camp. Jann was very accommodating, and the apartments had everything you could think of for a pleasant stay. One night we had a gathering in the courtyard with several additional people in attendance, and it fit our needs perfectly. It is close to everything! We received our deposit quickly after our return home.

Spring in Tuscallos
Spring in Tuscallos
We stayed at the cottage for a long weekend this spring to watch rowing event on the black warrior. Great place with lots of UA history adorning the walls and reading material around the cottage. Sure it would be a great place for a fall weekend during football season. Owners were very accommodating, great to deal with and refunding security deposit quickly. Overall I would get it high marks

Perfect Bama condo

My husband, a few friends and I stayed at this condo for ADay weekend. It was the perfect game day spot with a cute alabama themed interior and excellent outdoor space. Walking distance to JDs, the stadium and restaurants/bars. Thank you Jann, we will be back!!!!

This is the third time we have stayed at the Crimson Cottage and each time has been awesome! Twice in the spring with my wife and small children and last weekend with my brothers' and dad for a football weekend. Outstanding location and Jann and Donnie are great people to work with. Keep my deposit because we'll be back several times over the next few years to see our Bama student and to hang out for ourselves. Andy, Rebecca, and Family

Owner response: Andy! Thanks for the compliments and inspiring words! We SO enjoy when you come to stay. You and your family are great! Thanks so much for staying with us and you KNOW you are welcome anytime!
This is a great cottage for an Alabama game! and so much better than a hotel room. The porch is great for a morning cup of coffee or a nice glass of wine in the evening; it is a great gathering place! The cottage has 2 nice bedrooms and kitchen that are nicely decorated for BAMA fans. We had a phenomenal time there with a great tailgate party. I would highly recommend this rental for future renters!

We spent about 4 days in the bottom unit of this rental. It is decorated from floor to ceiling in Bama and that makes it so much fun to be, especially on game day. It is close to campus and the owners are very friendly and want to make sure that everything is comfortable for their tenants. Very clean, well maintained, every appliance you need. I would rent this unit again. Very comfortable.

Perfect Graduation Accommodation
Perfect Graduation Accommodation
Crimson Cottage was the perfect setting for our daughter's graduation weekend. We rented both units to house our extended family. The wonderful courtyard and upstairs balcony provided many areas for everyone to spread out and enjoy the graduation festivities. From the well-equipped kitchen to the Alabama decor and memorabilia - this property provided comfort and convenience during our stay. There was plenty of parking and everything was within walking distance. The Simpsons were great to deal with.

I rented the lower unit for a recent weekend in Tuscaloosa. The location of the Crimson Cottage is wonderful and the unit itself is decorated nicely. The apartment is completely stocked and comfortable. The owner was very easy to work with. I highly recommend the Crimson Cottage.
