About Amy Legate and Chris Mangini
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 is a Psychotherapist in Woodstock, VT. 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 and Chris Mangini purchased this House in 2011
Why Amy Legate and Chris Mangini chose Wellfleet
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.

Amy and Chris do a wonderful job of making their guests feel at home. From the beautiful flowers to the many amenities our stay was perfect! The house is located in a convenient location and a quiet neighborhood. Chris provided tons of information regarding fishing and hikes in the area. His knowledge was greatly appreciated! A binder at the house contains a wealth of information about things to do in the area as well. We had a wonderful stay at The New Era!
The cottage was amazing! The location was serene and access to some of the best beaches on the East Coast. I grew up going to Wellfleet every summer for the past 50 years. My grandfather had a home not to far from this cottage. It was great to travel about the places I remember as child and all through my early 20's. It is by far the best part of Cape Cod!
A little piece of Paradise Cape Cod Style
This was a super rental- from check in to check out- very comfortable. Clean, well-appointed home where we were close to beaches and restaurants but had a quiet place which became our retreat. This is a quality rental with lovely plantings and neighborhood.
Great home in a great location
What an amazing location; right off route 6, super quiet and right in the middle of the best the cape has to offer. Home was very clean with all the amenities, the hammock was the perfect spot to nap after completing the PMC and the outdoor shower had an amazing view of the water while still providing privacy.
Thank you Chris and Amy.
Had an amazing time in Wellfleet thanks to this property. Accurate description, clean, homey and beautiful.
A little slice of heaven
Janey and I spent 4 days here to celebrate an anniversary and really loved it. The house is new, super clean, and doesn't have that musty feeling a lot of older rentals seem to have on the Cape. It has great touches everywhere you look. The owners thought of everything: the appliances are new, the kitchen is fully appointed, washing machine and washer/dryer. The bed is super comfortable. There are nice cozy spots to hang out both inside and out overlooking the marsh. We particularly liked the location. Although it is one minute from route 6 it is incredibly quiet. The Cape Cod bike trail is very close as are several great beaches. Welfleet center is a few minutes up the road and Provincetown is just 25 minutes away. Lots of great restaurants around. PB Boulangerie and Blue Willow bakeries are close by (bike-able). We loved Ceraldi in Welfleet and really enjoyed The Mews in P-Town. Many other options available.
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.
