Twin Peaks is an unincorporated community in San Bernardino County, California, United States, located on California State Route 189 2.5 miles (4.0 km) west-southwest of Lake Arrowhead. Twin Peaks has a post office with ZIP code 92391, which opened in 1916.[2][3]


Originally settled in the 1860s as a strawberry farm, the town would first be known as Strawberry Flat.[4] Some of the first buildings to be constructed in the town include the now gone Squirrel Inn, the still-standing Antlers Inn, and the also still-standing Pine Rose Cabins. The Antlers Inn originated in 1919 when some 20 cabins were simultaneously constructed around a central lodge then known as the Alpine Terrace Resort.[5]


According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Twin Peaks has a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, abbreviated "Csa" on climate maps.[6]
