Family sailboat for single-handing - max size?

I'm an experienced motorboater but relatively new to sailing. I want to buy a boat large enough for a family of 4 for a week, but small enough for me to sail single-handed as well on inland lakes with up to force 3/4 winds. Would a 30-footer (around 3.5 tonnes) be reasonable?
