Looking for a road trip itinerary planning website...

Mr. Booksherpa and I are planning a 3 week road trip this summer (coastal Maine/Atlantic Canada; see this question
to help us out with that) and I'm looking for a website where we can enter our itinerary, plus some other features.
Here's the features I'd love to have: (Bold/italicized points are higher priority)
- ability to enter all of our individual stops
- time/distance between stops
- associate hotel/restaurant/shopping/event info with stops
- suggestions of places to visit at our stops as well as in-between
- keep trip private, but be able to share URL with specific people, preferably without them needing to make an account
I have looked at TripIt
, and it appears to be completely useless for my needs. I couldn't see a way to enter multiple stops, and I don't need the website to gather my booking info in one place - I've got a spreadsheet for that. TripIt seems to be geared towards "fly to one place, do stuff, fly home from same place" trips, near as I can tell, not driving trips with multiple stops. Google Maps does some of what I need, but not all of it.
Anyone know a website that does what I need?
I recognize I am an anal and obsessive trip planner - but planning and anticipation is half the fun!
