Thanks for the information. You've confirmed some of my expectations.
Funny you should mention Eldean's. My buddy and I sailed across the lake from Racine to Holland and stayed at Eldean's just about two weeks ago. Very nice. Very pretty. The problem is that Holland, on a good day, is 2.5+ hours away (my daughters go to Grand Valley State in Allendale, so I'm pretty familiar with the trip) and that is with no traffic. Leaving with Friday night traffic would make it too long of a trip.
