Getting to Rockland would only take an hour and a half or so from Portland and traffic wouldn't be a problem if you took 295 to Augusta, then 17E to Rockland rather than driving up route 1. So if you'll be to Portland anyway and want to go to Rockland I would do it.

But traffic will be more challenging around Rockland for your 3 days there at that time of year. But that's because so many people want to do it because it's such a great place to be at that time, like going anywhere during its prime season. It's a trade off.
