GET­TING THERE: Mar­shall, Mich., near Bat­tle Creek, is about a three-hour drive east of Chicago. It’s less than two hours west of Detroit.

WHERE TO STAY: Said to be the old­est op­er­at­ing ho­tel in Michi­gan (and once a stop on the Un­der­ground Rail­road), the Na­tional House Inn is a charm­ing spot to bed down. Built in 1835, its 15 rooms range from $110 to $170 and come with a full break­fast; 102 S. Parkview St., 269-7817374.

WHERE TO EAT: Like a lot of places in Mar­shall, Schuler’s Res­tau­rant & Pub has a long his­tory. John Bel­lairs pur­port­edly worked here, briefly, as a bus­boy. The fam­ily busi­ness has been around since 1909, serv­ing tasty prime rib, fish, burg­ers and sal­ads in an Old World at­mos­phere with dark pan­el­ing and check­ered table­cloths. Din­ner kicks off right with fresh-baked bread, crack­ers and a yummy cheese spread. Din­ing room is open daily un­til 9 p.m.; 115 S. Ea­gle St., 269-781-0600.
