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 Druid City

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..... :-)

My new home in T-town!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect little cottage! This place is such a joy to stay in, and I hope to come back lots over the next three years while my son is in school. Super clean, everything you need, super comfortable beds, and awesome outdoor spaces! I’ve been cooking and feeding hungry kids since I arrived, and had all I needed to make that happen. Russell has been awesome and so much help when this momma arrived with a full car and no darling son in sight! And you couldn’t have a better location. Felt like I was back in school, but much nicer digs than I had back in the day! Thanks, Jann....Can’t wait to come back! Roll Tide!

Great time had by all generations! surpassed all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family left feeling like it was a great experience. They enjoyed the Bama History, accommodations, the two kitchens, separate living areas (generational escapes), the outdoor grilling, entertainment areas and the well attended outdoor firepit.

The rental was well appointed and had everything we could possibly need. We rent summer beach houses each year, so we were impressed with the level of thoughtfulness put in making sure we had everything we could need. If you are a person that is flying in with only your luggage, you would appreciated the well equipped kitchen and bath.

My father, at 83 was very reluctant to join us, but raved about the week-end later, and loved the accommodations (and he was sleeping on the futon!) We will be back!

Caretaker was superb!

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.
