The House at Pooneil Corners is a song by the American rock group Jefferson Airplane which first appeared on their successful album Crown of Creation on which it is the eleventh and final track (track five of side two). It also appears on their album The Roar of Jefferson Airplane alongside the similarly named song "The Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil" suggesting that they are related, though they were made at different times.

Unlike "The Ballad," "The House At Pooneil Corners" was mainly written by Marty Balin and not Paul Kantner. This song was the only one Jefferson Airplane was able to complete when, while being filmed by Jean-Luc Godard performing on the roof of the Schuyler Hotel in New York in 1968, the police stopped the show. The band also closed their 1969 Woodstock performance with a rendition of the tune.
