What an $8.5 million castle on a cliff looks like in Muskoka

Cottages in Muskoka don't come dreamier than this one on Lake Joseph - the celebrity-filled enclave where even Cindy Crawford has a vacation property.

High Point, as it's referred to, is situated on a huge granite rock, giving it sweeping views of its surroundings. Since it faces west, it's also privy to glorious Muskoka sunsets, all for $8.5 million.

Beginning lakeside, High Point has an 800 foot waterfront. To enjoy it, there's a three-slip boathouse with a guest suite on top featuring a living room, bedroom and kitchenette.

Even without those additional accommodations, the main house should be able to fit any number of guests considering it's 8,000 square feet with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

The whole place has a rustic castle vibes, complete with a great room, turrets and a massive kitchen with two islands and four islands - this spot is made for throwing parties.

And guests can arrive via car or can land their helicopter at the on-site heliport.
