From the moment we walked into the Mayernik Center, it's been outstanding.
We first came upon the Mayernik as a happy accident. We actually had another venue booked and decided to switch it (we were able to get our money back) because we fell in love so hard with the Mayernik!
Jennifer has been extremely helpful and communicative in discussing our big day. I can't wait to celebrate there in April and will surely update with more helpful tips then!

I adored the Mayernik Center for our wedding reception this December! As soon as we toured it, we fell in love with the cozy feel of the cabin and the big stone fireplace, not to mention the simple 15 minute commute from downtown Pittsburgh. Jennifer is amazing at her job - she's organized, prompt, and ultimately will do anything to make sure you can relax and have a good time. She made it effortless to plan everything, set up for our event the night before, coordinate vendors' arrival, and assured that the reception went off without a hitch. When one of the bartenders came down with the flu the day before our wedding, it was Jenn who jumped behind the bar to serve! The Park Manager, Eric then stepped in to be our point person for the night of the wedding. The entire staff was stellar at tending to our every need. Other things worth noting that make this place awesome: There's a beautiful bridal suite with a private entrance and private bathroom for you and your wedding party. The giant deck is excellent overflow space to take a breather from the dance floor. You can bring your own alcohol which helps save tremendously on costs (and they'll help you calculate how much you'll need). Having our wedding at the Mayernik Center was one of the best choices we made and we could not be happier with our experience!

If you want a beautiful venue with a great staff for your wedding or any other event, rent the Mayernik Center in Avonworth Community Park. Their staff did a phenomenal job and went above and beyond to accommodate us for my daughter's wedding. Their attention to details and professionalism were extremely helpful when planning a wedding. All of our guests complimented us on how beautiful the venue is.
An absolutely stunning venue with friendly staff and a well put together event. I photographed a wedding there several weeks ago and the photographs came out beautifully with their rustic wood interior and gorgeous grounds to work from. I look forward to working here again.
Our studio has photographed a number of weddings at the Mayernik Center. The rustic charm of the building with its spacious interiors were well suited for a beautiful wedding event or special party. We captured some gorgeous photos outdoors of our wedding couple on the small bride and the natural setting of the creek and various landscapes around the facility. We would recommend highly The Mayernik Center for a truly nature oriented venue. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
