About Amy Legate

We live in Woodstock, VT and spend as much time as we can in Wellfleet. Amy grew up on the Cape and Chris visited the Cape for most of his life as a Surf Fisherman. Chris is a Veterinarian in Woodstock and Amy works for Ibex Outdoor Clothing nearby.

While on the Cape we love to fish, kayak, bike, windsurf, walk our dog, or simply beach it. Please feel free to ask if you have any interest in these activities. We can offer some great trips/tours for you.

Amy Legate purchased this house in 2011

Why Amy Legate chose Cape Cod

This house is our escape. It is a life long dream to live in Wellfleet. That is why we call it The New Era.

We bought this house as it was so different from all the others we looked at. It's new, quiet and relaxing. The backyard is a Wildlife Sanctuary that will always be wild. The location is close to everything we could need or want.

What makes this house unique

Drinking coffee and viewing the emerald green of the marsh is our favorite morning pastime. The open floor plan and large sun-lit windows make for a comfortable atmosphere to relax and unwind. The gas fireplace in the living room is a perfect touch for cool evenings. The master bedroom suite offers complete privacy with a sunny tree top view. Outdoor flower gardens around the patio stem from our Vermont gardens, offering a peaceful outdoor sanctuary.

Beautiful New home, clean, fun, great location, central AC

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully new house in the heart of my favorite part of Cape Cod. Close to the best beaches, restaurants, Bay, Ocean, Nature Center, shopping, Drive-In. This was the best house I've ever rented on the Cape. The Central AC was a blessing. The house has brand new appliances, a wonderful bedroom that feels like you are sleeping in the trees (there are no shades so the morning light comes in with a view of tree tops). The house was quiet, has 2 bathrooms (downstairs bathroom height is not for 6 ft or taller without hitting head). Great stone driveway for parking. I stared out the back window into trees and the beautiful marsh. Even saw a blue heron visiting. The basement is full of Cape Cod perfect equipment to maximize time at the beach (chairs, boogie boards) bycles and so much more. Totally worth the price.

This is a Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a cottage. It's new, clean, beautifully appointed without being fussy. The kitchen had everything you need and the washer/dryer is an added bonus, which makes packing easier and lighter. The master bedroom is large, well-lit, and very comfortable. The pull out couch in the sunroom is surprisingly firm and offers a good night's sleep. The best part is the location. The marsh in the back is lovely! You can sit and watch the tide rise, then jump in a kayak and go out to inlets and the bay. (No mosquitos!) The neighbors are quiet, friendly and a comfortable distance away. You are a short drive to both bay and ocean beaches. Owners Chris and Amy have many wonderful recommendations for places to hike and bicycle, beaches to walk/swim and a full spectrum of restaurants on both the high and low end--all are delicious and fun.

In all, this is a perfectly lovely spot for a Wellfleet vacation. We loved it and we will return!

Thank you Chris and Amy for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful Romantic Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully decorated, and has just about everything you could ever need. We drove down to the Wellfleet Market to get food for the week(a little pricy, bring food with you from home if you want to save a little money). The house is pretty well equipped with spices, oils, and condiments. Everything is very clean with all new appliances.

My boyfriend and I very much enjoyed the little get-away. We are in love with Marconi beach. It is just a 3 mile bike ride away. (bring a bike lock and helmets) The beach is incredible. Very sandy, great waves, and huge sand bars during low tide. The house is also very close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. A great bike trail that runs for 22 miles.

We went to Van Rensselaer's Restaurant one night for dinner which was very good, and if you arrive early(between 4:00 - 5:30) they have early bird specials. For breakfast, I would highly recommend the french bakery, PB Boulangerie Bistro. They have the most amazing croissants ever!

Would definitely recommend this house to other couples, no matter what age, and families with older children. One tip: it can sleep 6 but 6 adults would be a little cramped. 2 couples would be comfortable here. The sun room has a pullout couch with a sliding door that becomes the second bedroom and the couch in the living room is also a fold out.

Thank you Amy for the wonderful vacation!

Lovely Wellfleet Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I felt right at home in this extremely clean, comfortable, modern and well-appointed home. The scenery surrounding this home is peaceful and beautiful with lots of trees and marsh. We would definately rent this home again for future Cape Cod vacations.

Peaceful Retreat in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

We rented for the week of July 4th and loved this house. We were welcomed by a warm note from the owners along with a bottle of wine. It's an incredibly peaceful setting that looks out onto the marshland estuaries adjacent to the Audubon. The home was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and well-appointed with everything we could have possibly needed for a great vacation - including central air (It was hot!). You can tell the owners put a lot of love and care into building and maintaining it. Gorgeous gardens. Just an all around great house.

The Perfect Cape Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE everything about this home. Not only is it charming, beautifully decorated (with local art), well stocked and extremely well maintained, it's also in a great location! Just minutes from the Audubon Sanctuary, where we spent our mornings exploring the beautiful trails (after first grabbing a croissant and espresso at the local french bakery - the Boulangerie!). Next, access to the rail-trail is just a short distance away through a little neighborhood, adding yet another bonus as we easily got in a daily morning bike tour of the beaches, fresh water ponds as well as the town of Wellfleet on our road bikes from the house without really going on Route 6. The house is also in a lovely neighborhood of its own which afforded us some lovely evening walks not to mention the beautiful late afternoon cocktail hour overlooking the marshes from the back of the house. Another favorite or ours is the outdoor shower.....I an incredible view and openess will make you never want to shower indoors again! We have been coming to the Cape for more than 20 years and typically have rented in Truro, but we're hooked on this spot as it gives us everything we need and want plus so much more. The little den (which has its own door) can be used as an extra guest space (has a pull out sofa) plus the sofa in the living room is also pull-out (if you don't mind being really close to everybody it works just fine) and there is everything you need to cook up that fresh Sea Bass you might catch surf casting any one of the many great fishing spots in Wellfleet. Thank you Chris and Amy for making your dream home available to us. We will be back soon!

Marconi National Seashore

Our home is located on Cape Cod Bay and the Fresh Brook Estuary in South Wellfleet just 1 mile from the Cape Cod National Seashore (Marconi and Coast Guard Beach). Wildlife and nature abound in our backyard, the Mass Audobon's Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary.

The property provides easy access to the Cape Rail Trail from which you can ride south to Dennis or to any place in Wellfleet without driving on Busy Rte 6. Bay and Oceanside beaches including remote Great Island are nearby. Many fresh water lakes and ponds are a short car or bike ride away. Deep sea fish from a local harbor or fish from the shores for seasonal favorites like Stripped Bass and Bluefish. Whether Kayaking or SUP boarding in the backyard or simply strolling the beaches for sea shells, this house offers it all.

The proximity to Rte 6 allows easy access to many nearby activities without the crowds. The Wellfleet Drive-In & Movie theater is 1 mile from the house. Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater is just up the street. Museums, shopping, fine art galleries, and antique shops are found in Wellfleet and just south a few miles in Eastham. Indoor rock climbing and mini-golf can be found just down the street.

Restaurants within a few miles include American fare, fine French dining and bakery (PB Boulangerie Bistro), BBQ, clam shacks, Thai, and a fresh fish market.

Sitting in the back yard among our flowers watching the Blue Herons or riding a bike to your favorite Wellfleet destination offers the perfect opportunity to escape the summer crowds and relax.
