Mowen's Hut is a location featured in Dead Island. It is the home of the smuggler Mowen and found deep in the Mingende Jungle. The Heroes first visit the hut during the main quest King of the Swamp, after Matutero leads them there once they acquire Mowen's Boat. Mowen has been living in the hut, hidden away from most of the inhabitants of the jungle with its location only known by a trusted few.

Like all of the huts in the Jungle, Mowen's Hut is a simple bungalow with wooden walls and a thatched roof over it to keep the monsoon rains out of the building. The windows are boarded up and the only entrance is via the double doors at the front of the building. To the right is a small inaccessible storage hut joined to the building. Within the hut is all the basic essentials Mowen needs to survive, including a mattress for sleeping, a fridge for keeping food, a table and some chairs as well as other miscellaneous furniture for storage. A radio is on the table along with a desk light.
