Combining a love for cooking breakfast and a desire to own rural land, Mike and Becky Clark opened Maple Creek Bed & Breakfast to the public in mid-July, attracting reservations from guests as far as England, Portugal, South Africa and Germany, the couple said. The Clarks co-own the business with their eldest daughter Katie Whisler and her husband, Samuel.

“There’s so much happening within Tomball to make Tomball a destination, and we get to reap the benefits of that as well as contribute to [the city] being an attraction,” Mike Clark said.
