It's definitely doable but you will likely have one long day.
Valentine to Basset - 64
Bassett to O'Neill - 48
O'Neill to Neligh - 41
Neligh to Norfolk - 35
Valentine has a brewery, restaurants and is a nice place to start and your first day could be a long day to Basset which has a nice down town hotel.
I would also make sure to stop in Atkinson, they have a developing nice town and a nice brewery and pizza restaurant.
Newport has a nice self service pool haul on main street. Johnstown has a nice bar with food.
Another option would be:
Valentine to Ainsworth - 47
Ainsworth to Atkinson - 48
Atkinson to Ewing - 40
Ewing to Norfolk - 54
All of the towns mentioned have hotels listed and a lot of the towns listed have food but you will want to verify.
