A FAMILY owned and operated North East tourism business is offering a place to sleep and eat after horseback trail rides.

Bogong Horseback Adventures at Tawonga opened an accommodation centre and cafe on Saturday.

Kath and Steve Baird and their sons, Lin and Clay, have operated the business for 30 years.

Clay said the family had received a $100,000 federal tourism grant, matching them dollar for dollar.

“The opening was an amazing experience,” he said.

“It’s been a long process over three years to get us here.”

The member for Indi, Cathy McGowan, opened the Spring Spur Stay and Riders Lounge.

The lounge has six double rooms with ensuites and mountain views.

“We are excited about the cafe as it gives us a hosting facility to expand and diversify our product,” Mr Baird said.
