We are avid fishermen and find Buxton to be central to all the great fishing locations on Hatteras Island. For the past 4 fishing trips to OBX, we have enjoyed staying at Cape Pines Motel which offers clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Relative to other accommodations in this small village, the motel is located in a quieter section and we have never had issues with noise. Our room (two queen beds) was equipped with a small refrigerator and microwave and small TV with an amazing selection of channels. Fresh, delicious coffee is available in the office throughout the day. There is a large fish-cleaning station at the back of the property. The pool area looked very nice, although we were too busy fishing to check it out. Connor's Grocery is across the street and restaurants are nearby, including Rusty's Surf and Turf, Papanino's (good pizza and subs), and Diamond Shoals where you can get a hearty breakfast to start your day.
If you are visiting Buxton to fish, remember to check out http://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/off-road-vehicle-use.htm. ORV permits are now required and certain ramps (including Ramp 44 - the Point) were closed while we were there due to Piping Plover nesting (I could comment further - but I'll refrain). Red Drum Tackle Shop is always up to date on what folks are catching, so you may want to call them when planning your visit.
Whether you're visiting Buxton to fish or just enjoy the beautiful beaches with your family or friends, Cape Pines Motel is a winner. Check it out!
