The NeighborhoodVela’s Villa, Main house is part of a private little neighborhood within a neighborhood–a group of four houses sharing the same lot, located a block away from historic Harlan, Kentucky’s downtown. Nestled in a valley in the ancient and enchanted Appalachian mountains. Great walking community!! Getting AroundYou can walk to a few local restaurants, the river and parks! This house is great because you are in a very rural area, but you are within two blocks of historical downtown Harlan. So you get the quaint town experience with out being isolated. Other Things to NoteMake sure you BYOB because this town is Moist (semi dry (although alcohol is legal to have and consume alcohol within your private dwelling)). A few restaurant currently serve alcohol The Portal (pizzeria), El Charrito (mexican) and Ken & Paul's Family Steakhouse.
Moist defined: with regard to the sale of alcohol, Harlan is classified as a moist county—a county in which alcohol sales are prohibited (a dry county), but containing a "wet" city, in this case Cumberland and Lynch, where package alcohol sales are allowed. In the city of Harlan, restaurants seating 100+ may serve alcoholic beverages.
