We had a fantastic experience at the Mercantile last year.  We sat at 
the bar and chatted with the bartender, who told us he and his brother 
owned it.  He seemed to genuinely enjoyour conversation, always 
returning to chat when he wasn't busy. Dinner was delicious.  He kept my 
soda glass full (of Squirt, BTW). They made us sandwiches to go.  He 
didn't mind that we filled our water bottles. A very positive experience.

I also called the B&B and was told they were full.  I never mentioned we 
were hikers.  The bartender told us that theB&B likes *plenty* of 
advance notice.
