The Matthew Bowen Homestead, also once known as the Plaine Hill Farm, is a historic house at 94 Plaine Hill Road in Woodstock, Connecticut. It is now the Inn at Woodstock. It consists of a five-building farm complex on 14.3 acres (5.8 ha) of land, located southwest of Woodstock Hill. The main house of the complex is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, six bays wide, with a tall hip roof. It was built in 1816, and underwent two major periods of alteration before achieving its present configuration. Originally five bays wide, Victorian porches and a turret were added in the 1880s, but largely removed in the late 1920s, at which time it was extended to six bays. The house is connected to 19th-century farm buildings, including two barns and a carriage house. A 1930s vintage Cape house stands at a remove from the main complex. The property was for many years associated with the locally prominent Bowen family, who also owned the National Historic Landmark Roseland Cottage in Woodstock Hill.

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
